Milan consider bid for Hulk

Milan are thinking about making a bid for Porto striker Hulk, according to Il Corriere dello Sport.

The 24-year-old Brazil international has played a key role in Porto's remarkable season under Andre Villas Boas.

Hulk has scored 21 goals in 23 League games, ensuring Porto wrapped up the title earlier this month.

Milan are keen to find an alternative to Zlatan Ibrahimovic ahead of their assault on next year's Champions League.

The club's director of sport Ariedo Braida has recommended Hulk on account of his size and sheer physicality.

Milan have also expressed an interest, along with half of Europe, in Anderlecht's 18-year-old striker Romelu Lukaku.
