Football Express News understand that Arsenal have had an offer of £26.3M accepted by Zenit for their star Brazilian player Hulk.

The Brazilian international has had a disappointing season at Russian Premier League side Zenit, filled with injuries, but that hasn’t prevented any approach for the Brazilian Forward from a number of top European clubs.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is looking to bolster his attacking options and build on the success of their FA Cup victory by adding some key names to the squad in a hope that they could make a challenge for the title next season.

Although Arsenal are not to keen to match Hulk’s €180,000 a week salary, they are looking to bring Hulk to the Emirates this summer and are planning a number of substantial contract packages.

Hulk who only netted seven goals this season, is looking for a move away from Zenit as he is reportedly feeling unsettled and Arsenal and would seemingly enjoy a stint in England.
