Hulk has admitted that he has “always supported Arsenal” and it would be a “dream” to one day play in the Premier League.

The Brazil international moved to Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG this time last year in a deal that landed him an astonishing £320,000-a-week contract.

The 30-year-old has been linked with a move to the Premier League in the past during his successful spells at Porto and Zenit Saint Petersburg.

A move never materialised to England but Hulk – who hasn’t played for Brazil since the 2016 Copa America – still hopes to play there one day if possible.

“It’s always been a dream, it’s a very competitive championship and the stadiums are full in every game, no matter what the team, I always follow the league and I have always supported Arsenal,” he told Sport TV.

“[I’m a fan of] Wenger’s way of playing, but unfortunately he has not won trophies in recent years.”

Hulk has three years left on his contract in China but won’t rule out a transfer back to Europe.

“The city is very good, the club has a great culture and gives a lot of support,” he added. “I have a contract for four years and have three left.

“I am very happy, but nothing is impossible, especially in football.”
