Chelsea prepare second offer for striker

With Porto trying to extort millions from Chelsea for their Brazilian star, Hulk, the Blues may have been put off. Having already had a bid of £20 million for 22-year old Montenegro international Stevan Jovetic turned down by Fiorentina, the same was thought to be true of that deal.

The Daily Mail reports that Chelsea are ready to up their offer to £25 million in order to trigger the buy out clause in Jovetic’s contract. Roberto Di Matteo is well aware of the Fiorentina front man’s abilities and seems determined to acquire his services at Stamford Bridge.

Jovetic missed the whole of the 2010-2011 season after damaging cruciate ligaments in his right knee. He came back with a vengeance last season, scoring 14 goals in 27 league games and earning himself a new contract with Fiorentina that lasts until 2016.

I don’t think he is seen as an alternative to Hulk but as a different option for Chelsea. Di Matteo needs to replace two strikers, Drogba and Kalou, so if Jovetic does sign for Chelsea, it does not mean that Hulk will not be coming to London.

Chelsea might also face competition from Liverpool in their attempt to get Victor Moses from Wigan. Wigan have demanded twice the £4 million that Chelsea offered and Liverpool might be willing to pay it if Spurs intercept their bid to sign Gylffi Sigurdsson.

    Chelsea should pls sign Jovetic nd Hulk so as 2 av more option on the bench.

  2. Chibuike says

    Chelsea should jovetic because he is good and can play on the wingers also and we need hulk, modric or mountiho and debuchy

  3. BABS says

    for God sake why d delay to dis transfers.Get us hulk,debuchy,moses,modric& jovetic dont forget when deco,ballack and joe cole left there was no replacements n we paid dearly for it d following season.

  4. Joseharga says

    Chelsea are too found of keeping their fans in suspense; going after many players n losing their signature at d end or signing some on the transfer dateline. This time many players are out of contract and will leave. There is only one major signing. Sit men. Up chelsea!

    chelsea is depleted upfront!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    if you do not get people in, you will relegate if you think
    torres & sturrdge are fine;
    for one i would sell these two NOW!!
    **** please i do not want another year like the last one in the premier league!*****
    you also have to replace anelka too; so 3 people upfront!

    We won’t have to worry about having a repeat of last season as hazard alone will help with creativity and delivery to who ever plays striker. I haven’t seen much of Marin so I can’t judge but I think hulk is overpriced and jovetic is half the cost and 4yrs younger

  7. Charles says

    chelsea should try nd make hay when there is time,hulk will b a perfect replacement for drog,jovetic is marvelous player,we dont need moses cos his not word class,lavezzi will b more suitable to chelsea style of play,debuchy 4 position of 2

  8. Mudazinho says

    I think chelsea should act fast n stop puting we d fan in suspence,by geting us modric,hulk,jovetic,debuchy or van der wiel.pls it our time to dominate europe blues till eternity.

  9. hamzat taiwo says

    we shld sign moses modric debuchy and hulk before they are hijack from us

  10. chiboy says

    For heaven sake what is wrong wt u guys. If u lack comments just read d rumour and back off. U want d club to buy a new team, we ve d accademy guys coming thru. The ranks, all we need is one striker and a right back as a backup afterall most of d youths re right backs.

  11. Duru Finbar says

    Pls 4get about hulk if porto continues with dis… Go out enter unknown clubs and u will see sharp strikers dat re beta dan him…

  12. Taiwo Shanu says

    We all acknowlegde the quality of HULK and as well wish his addition ti Chelsea.However,he is ridiculously over prized. Chelsea should negotiate responsibly and note its focus in developing it Academy should be given an improved attention to avoid buying or paying for a player with so much.Abramovich should pls act fast on our possible target

  13. Taiwo Shanu says

    I hope Chelsea will try and avoid the repeat of last season,where my darling team CHELSEA struggle and pray for draw against team like WIGAN,We are now European Champ,and we must present a team that befit that status of a Champ.HULK,DEBUCHY,MOSES,and JOVETIC would not only be a good thinking but as well good product.We need Radamel Falcao. Abrahamovich should connect this top finisher

  14. victor says

    chelsea n abromovich please go n buy hulk n lucas moura as early as u can before someone else takes them n that would complete the signing guys money is not the problem for chelsea

  15. felix says

    I think chelsea should try and make haste to buy hulk as a good replacement 4 drogba and jovetic 4 d replacement of kalou because their is no time, chelsea should forget about maicon, maicon is old and he does not feet 4 chelsea, y not go 4 pierera the portigues rigth full back as a replacement 4 bosingwa, up blues 4 life.

  16. Ali rawa says

    Hulk is enough pls.
