Tottenham Hotspur hope to win the race to sign Porto ace Hulk.
The Brazilian international has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea this summer, with a fee of around £25million likely to secure his signature.

This has allowed Andre Villas-Boas, the Spurs boss, to launch his own bid for the 25-year-old, who played under him whilst he was in charge of Porto.
