But Hulk has revealed there’s an offer on the table from the Premier League this month.

And the 31-year-old admits he’s definitely interested in finally giving English football a taste.

Hulk has long been linked with a top-flight switch, with both Chelsea and Manchester City having come close to securing his signature.

However, it appears there’s still interest in the versatile attacker, who’s scored 17 goals and assisted a further 11 in 26 appearances this season.

Hulk revealed: “I received one contact from the Premier League and quite a few others from other countries.

“I admire the Premier League very much and it’s considered not by accident the best league in the world.

“Of course I follow it but I am happy here. I have almost three more years on my contract so I am happy here.

“But one never knows in football, everything can happen and my agent receives contact from Europe, including from the UK.”
