Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas is ready to make an attempt to sign Brazilian striker Hulk on a £30million deal, but the club faces a tough mountain to climb as Zenit St Petersburg want £40million for him.
Villas-Boas is interested in reuniting with Hulk. The Portuguese boss managed Hulk when they were both at Porto. And the striker would fit in perfectly at White Hart Lane with the pending departure of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.
What’s your opinion? Will Tottenham be able to sign Hulk for £30million? Or will Zenit hold on to their player after the window closes?
