Tottenham Close In On £30m Deal For Brazilian Striker Hulk: Nightly Soccer Report

hulk Tottenham Close In On £30m Deal For Brazilian Striker Hulk: Nightly Soccer Report

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.

In addition to Hulk, Tottenham are close to finalizing deals for Erik Lamela as well as Vlad Chiriches.

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?

    De Selby angry!!!

    Umm, If I was a player in a world cup year, I would find it more advantageous if I was playing in the Champions League, and it looks like ZSP will make the group stage barring a disaster of a return leg.

  3. Dust says:

    Hulk teaming up with Brazil 1st teamers like paulinho and Sandro will work in his favour with big Phil more so than 6 UCL games.

    Plus players want to win, hulk won with AVB and not since.

    I think this story is rubbish, no reason for zenit to sell, especially at a loss… It’s not my cash but 40m plus high wages is unlikely….

    Lamela and Jackson Martinez would suit me just fine.

  4. Bulwark says:

    Hulk is absolutely top class and would be worth every penny of 30 million as a second striker. However spurs are getting Erik Lamela, Vlad Chiriches and a creative midfielder is the most importantthing after that. AVB woul get the best out of Hulk and he could instantly replace Bales goal threat plus brings a lot of clever creative play with him, but I really dont see this one happening.

  6. Sorry for my horrible english, but I live in Brazil and the Hulk is hated here is an average player, playing here in Brazil there are at least 10 players like him and a lot cheaper, Leandro Damiao is more complete than the Hulk without saying that Hulk has only one move that is cut to the middle and pound, Damian is most complete is skilled, makes goals from outside the area and a great header of the ball to a player with the same characteristics of Bale is “Vicky” Botafogo FR, which incidentally has a promising future, but see that the left side of the Spurs is the weakest point is strong Rose crosses over very badly and Spurs is a team of the ball has left back Fábio Santos SC Corinthians that would fit very well to team. look for videos of Vicky and Leandro Damiao on youtube to know them better.
