Reports: Chelsea After Hulk & Cavani

Which of Hulk or Edinson Cavani are Chelsea going to buy?

Overnight, reports emerged that the Blues are considering bids for both strikers.

Brazilian international Hulk, who plays unhappily for Zenit St Petersburg in Russia, claims that there is truth in the rumour that Chelsea have made enquiries into his availability.

“If I said there wasn’t anything in it, I would be lying, but that is not for now,” he said regarding Chelsea’s reported interest, before insisting that his focus remains on Brazil's Confederations Cup assault.

Meanwhile, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis also confirmed that Chelsea are sniffing around the Italian club’s Uruguayan international striker, Cavani.

He said on Thursday night that he expects negotiations over Cavani to take place “in the next hours.”

"If Cavani is sold then I’ll reinvest all of the €63 million of his rescission clause. There is interest from Chelsea in Cavani, they’ll call me in the next few hours,” De Laurentiis.

"I'll be delighted if he stays, but if he leaves then he will be adequately replaced.”

It would really be something if the Blues were to sign both Hulk and Cavani, giving their strike force a sumptuous new South American flavour.

But with Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Romelu Lukaku already on the books of the Europa League champions, a double swoop for two of most expensive, highly-rated forwards in European club football remains highly unlikely.

Who do you think Chelsea should sign: Hulk, Cavani or both?
