According to the press and in particular The Times (who are a credible source compared to the Daily Fail!) it seems that Roman Abramovich has someone in mind to fill the void at Chelsea down the right hand side if we are unable to get a deal done for Hulk.

That player seems to be Newcastle's Hatem Ben Arfa!.

Now I will be honest, I haven't seen alot of Ben Arfa so will have to reserve judgement on him as I have only seen him a couple of times. I know he has struggled with injury since he came to the Premier League, but it seems that he made his mark last season as Newcastle had a fantastic season.

The rumour is that Chelsea have made an approach for him to Newcastle for around £18m and have made the initial enquiry into his availability. However, it seems that Newcastle would be holding our for around £25m before they are willing to discuss a deal.

So I'm thinking that it's alot of money to pay for a player who has had just one good season isn't it. Hulk on the flip side, is more established and has been playing well for Porto for a few seasons now and although alot more expensive, In my eyes he would provide us with a better option down the right with his power, pace and skill.

Normally you would see rumours like this appear and would just brush them to one side but as I say, this has appeared in The Times so there has to be substance to the rumour.

It will be interesting to see what happens with this one. Like I said for me i would push Chelsea to get a deal done for Hulk rather than Ben Arfa but what do you people think?

Who would offer Chelsea more down the right hand side and what do you think of Ben Arfa?

  1. Yes he had just one good season and we have lot of options... ex Susaeta, Elia, Dzagoev etc and of course buying him that also for 18m or more is worthless...

  2. Chelsea should be going for HULK .. If they are going for ben arfa then not on such a high transfer fee :p

  3. Mr.Abrahimovic,pls do evrything withn your power to get Hulk,not for da club along but da funs too.plssss

  4. Him being injured, one good season, may be one big gamble, I feel.

  5. Ben arfa is a good player.i have watch his games even before he joined newcastle. Buh since his injury prone, I think JOVETIC is a better option since we can't get HULK .he's got speed,still very young & promising.I think he shld fit chelsea's game his nt a selfish player unlike hulk & his a lot cheaper too . Lol

  6. Hulk is too expensive .. Value n price depreciation will hit the 38 million we buy him for to as low as 15 million.. No re-sell value.

    And he is largely over rated.. He's a fun player to watch and his strength and agility is impressive and would do well in the very physical EPL, but I think he would be a major failure.

    1. Yay! I'm not the only one with a brain...

    2. correct .. u r not...

  7. If we can get hulk for 25 then that would be great,. But Ben Arfa is certainly more of a future player than hulk.

    It will be magnificent and great paying for the transfer fee of hulk who had been performing extraordinarily than who had perform once out of several seasons. Roman pls use all at ur reach to sign HULK to fortify our attack nxt season since Drogba is out to shenhua

  9. Ben Arfa,,,,,yes he is good but I feel Hulk is beta n both ar over priced

  10. i jst watchd hulk's video onlyn n i cn c dat dis guy is quite selfish lyk sturridge. He finds it dificult 4 a 9ce team wrk. I dnt tink we nid anoda sturridge @ chelsea. Let's stop comparin hulk n ben arfa bcos d play in difrent positions. We cnt cmpare a defenda n an attacker.

    1. Which one is a defender they both play right side of mide ones a right sided attacking play maker ones a right winger who cuts in :/ both are good ben Afra has had 3 good season if you count the games he played when not injured but he did have 2 big injuries :/

    2. Hulk has had to become more selfish for Porto since they lost falcao who scored most of their goals. Ive watched his matches for Brazil and he is not as selfish, but still doesn't work as hard defensively as he could

  11. Don't know much about arfa but injury that affects a players' production is reason for caution. We hav waited into his second season to see torres show signs of finally being back from his injury. We need pace, teamwork, strenght and goals from the right to complement the main striker and we need a second striker while lukaku develops. Jovetic and cavani ....... For just a little more than what Porto is asking for hulk alone --------- 15 & 35 vs 50.

  12. Hulk deal is relic, shackle from the pass which can't never be repeated. As with Ben Alfa or whatever he is call, let he wait a while for his proper wealth to be assessed

  13. Raid Arsenal and get Theo Walcott.

  14. Hulks a centre 4ward u pleb and who sed ben arfa is a defender

  15. get jovetic or mosses instead. Hulk is good, but not incredible to worth as much as 38Mln. No more wasting like we did for shevechenco and torres...

  16. get jovetic or mosses instead. Hulk is good, but not incredible to worth as much as 38Mln. No more wasting like we did for shevechenco and torres...
