Chelsea's latest transfer interest—Porto striker Hulk—has given Chelsea a huge confidence boost by stating he would rather join them than any other club in the world.

Hulk has been rumored to be making a move to Stamford Bridge for several weeks now. With little action taking place between the two clubs, it appeared that a potential deal may have been out of the equation and that Chelsea should pursue other avenues.

But according to Talksport, Hulk has indicated that he doesn't want to move anywhere this summer except to Chelsea and that he will hold out for a formal offer to be made by the Blues.

Chelsea are the champions of Europe and any player would like to go there. I would like to go there more than any other club. But I have to remember that I have a contract at Porto and I am very happy here too...

Chelsea are rumored to be battling Ligue 1 club Paris St. Germain for the Brazilian international, who are backed by their Qatari owners and desperate to sign the striker over the summer transfer window.

However, the 25-year-old has dismissed a move to Paris, with a move to the London club his sole wish this summer and the most likely event to occur.

Chelsea are rumored to be putting together a £38 million bid for the Porto striker. They see him as a replacement for departing striker Dider Drogba, who recently completed a move to Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua.

Will Hulk end up moving to Chelsea over the summer transfer window?
