Daily Mail Says Spurs Are Preparing Bid for Hulk

The Daily Mail are reporting that Tottenham are preparing a £35 million dollar bid for Porto forward Hulk. The Brazilian attacker, 25, is already the subjects of talks between Tottenham and Porto according to their sources. After tallying 23 goals in 26 league appearances last season, Hulk has become one of the most feared goalscorers on the continent.

Of course, Hulk would be a tremendous addition for Spurs. He can play a wide forward or centrally, and has a finishing ability unmatched on the Tottenham squad. Unfortunately, he costs twice as much as Tottenham's previous record signing, the £17m rated David Bentley (and look how well that turned out).

It's also hard to imagine Hulk would be interested in leaving Champions League football for the Europa League again this season. Spurs are unlikely to offer the competitive wages to get Hulk to disregard that want for Europe's top competition. 

Every Spurs supporter would be delighted to see the Lou Ferrigno doppelgänger play at The Lane. A shame though, this deal seems pretty damn unlikely.
