Zenit St Petersburg forward Hulk revealed he has a number of offers from around Europe to consider, but insists he is undecided on where his future lies.

Hulk agreed to leave Portuguese outfit Porto in the summer of 2012 for a fee of 40million euros, but he has not settled as quickly as expected.

It was reported he has endured problems with other members of the squad who are unhappy with his huge wage salary as well as being subjected to racist chants by sections of the home support.

The Brazil international has revealed he has been approached by a couple of clubs who would like to offer him a route out of Russia, but he will take some time to assess his options.

The 26-year-old has recently returned from Brazil where he was a vital member of the victorious Confederations Cup squad that eased to a 3-0 win over world and European champions Spain in the final.

The forward’s current deal runs until June 2017 and it is expected Zenit will be looking to recoup as much of the transfer fee as possible if they are to let him leave.

Hulk said: “I have received some offers. A number of clubs are interested in me. But if I do leave, it has to be a step up to a better club and a better league.

“I am happy to stay here, though, if a transfer does not materialise. Zenit are a great club and I am happy here.”
