Hulk Alternatives?

Hulk Alternatives?

With the transfer saga of Hulk dragging on a bit and many of us fans deeming the £38 million fee to be overpriced, I'd like to get your thoughts on some alternatives to the incredible one.

I have listed some below and would love to hear what you think.

By all means suggest others that you feel would be better alternatives.

1) Willian

2) Douglas Costa

3) Edinson Cavani

4) Marco Reus

5) Gabriel Torje

6) Loic Remy

7) Adam Johnson

8) Victor Moses

9) Junior Hoillett

10) Hatem Ben Arfa

I realise that we've not been linked with many of the above but I personally think that these are viable alternatives that would come at a fraction of the price.

I'll even stick my neck out and say, my personal preference would be Hatem Ben Arfa, Who I think is quality and would really add something to us.

The no.1 alternative is LUCAS MOURA. And he's not there in the list?
08/06/2012 07:51:00
I would rather say MOURA is my first choice and HULK is the alternative.

how would be alan dzagoev?? whats his actual position is? will get to see him at euros. and i think he is a winger. never seen him play though. have heard here from some of you only and also in one news paper where in preview they said alan dzagoev is the star man for them.
08/06/2012 07:53:00
willian or munian
08/06/2012 08:05:00
Adam Johnson. He‘s proven, he‘s English (6+4 rule) & he‘ll be cheap.
08/06/2012 08:06:00
Oh and he‘s young as well plenty of years of service for CFC.
08/06/2012 08:08:00
I see everyone is going for star players some whom are hyped to be world class by the media..for me..I'll go with junior hoilett or Victor moses...both are considered home grown and aren't bad players either.. they have premier league experience and are under 22.. both can play anywhere along the front line..they track back and help the defenders when not attacking and most importantly we've actually seen them play...
08/06/2012 08:10:00
i think in terms of strengh, pace, technique and body fitness there is NO alternative to Hulk! He is the whole package...thats what we need - and he is a worker all game long! Imagine Hulk vs Bale! oh my god.....
08/06/2012 08:12:00
Adam johnson is my own alternative,a highly underated player....Hulk's strength would be needed to balance up the team
08/06/2012 08:21:00
Junior Hoillett is off to germany so you can take him off. They all right sided but are any of them the SAME type of player as Hulk and that answer is no. I still want Hulk.
08/06/2012 08:41:00
Marco Reus moves to Dortmund and Hoilett have completed his move to Borrusia Moenchengladbach, personally i would love us to get Johnson, that Loic Remy, Willian, Douglas Costa are freaking over rated
08/06/2012 08:51:00
Adam Johnson in a straight swap for sturridge. Iker munian as back up.
08/06/2012 09:09:00
BREAKING: I have just heard from a good source in london that the deal with Hulk is in a real doubt....Porto just want too much money - but Hulk is more than willing to play for Chelsea - Luiz and Ramires are doing their best to get him to Chelsea! Hulk asked them how live is in London and at the Bridge! This story is far from over! And far from done!
08/06/2012 09:12:00
Holliet, Adam Johnson or Loic Remy.
08/06/2012 09:25:00
Well if porto cant get hulk for 30million max! We can get adam johnson for less...Besides i learnt that marin can play RW comfortably..I like hulk but we dont need to pay thru our nose for him
08/06/2012 09:32:00
*if they dont accept a bid of 30m max*
08/06/2012 09:34:00
The money will be better spent on Modric and swap sturridge with Adam Johnson.Johnson will get more games at Chelsea and won't complain when he is on the bench unlike sturridge,And i just f***king want Modric at the bridge!
08/06/2012 09:41:00
Alan dzagoev... Rw 21 yrs and a self admitted chelsea fan.
08/06/2012 09:42:00
@blueearth and who would be your first choice right winger?? Johnson? Cmon but he is not that good for being first choice - and so is ramires! He is no winger....We need Hulk or a high quality winger...FACT!
