Porto striker Hulk has confirmed his interest in a move to Champions League winners Chelsea, after months of reports linking him to the club.

Hulk, 25, has been on international duty with Brazil for the past month, but is now looking to finalise his club for next season, although he has insisted that he has no qualms with staying at Porto.

"Chelsea are the current European champions and would please any player and I'm no exception," Hulk told O Jogo.

"I'd be happy if the transfer happened. I leave everything in the hands of Porto. I am under contract and I have been happy at Porto for four years, where I have achieved everything. I'll have the club in my heart no matter what happens this summer or in any other summer."

The Selecao star is contracted at Porto until 2014, with the Portuguese club open to the possibility of selling this summer to ensure the best possible price for their asset.
