The 21-year-old was in good form for Wigan towards the end of the season as Roberto Martinez’s side played some impressive football and managed to save themselves from relegation despite suffering some awful results for much of the campaign. But the bad news for Wigan is that the player has caught the eye of other clubs and only has one year left on his deal, so they could be forced into a sale if they player wanted to leave or risk losing him for nothing next summer.
Moses told MTN Football:
“I don’t know for now [whether I will move], but there’s a link for me to Liverpool, Chelsea and some other clubs in England.
“If the offer is cool, why not, I will move.”
Moses is certainly an interesting prospect for Chelsea and we could do with a few more home-grown players in the squad, especially as Daniel Sturridge has been linked with an exit, and Moses would probably come at a decent price.
However, with the likes of Eden Hazard, Juan Mata, Marko Marin, Daniel Sturridge and the possibility of Hulk joining them, we’re probably not going to be able to guarantee him as much playing time as Liverpool could as their current batch of attacking talent is complete guff.
Moses joined Wigan from Crystal Palace for £2.5 million in 2010 and has been tipped for a bright future for a number of years now. Last season the player scored six goals and made six assists for Wigan in 38 games for the club, do you think he would make a good addition to Chelsea’s squad?
I wouldn’t mind seeing us make this sort of move, especially for the home-grown factor and it’s a good time to go for the player as his deal has only one more year to run. I would also go for the likes of Danny Simpson, who also hasn’t got long left to run on his contract and after a good season he can consider himself unlucky to be behind the likes of Martin Kelly in the England pecking order. Wayne Hennessey is another player I believe we should have gone for in the past, a decent home-grown goalkeeper unlike Ross Turnbull who is there simply to make up the numbers
…anyway, I’ve gone off on a tangent. What are your opinions on Victor Moses? – Have your say in the comments section below
