Chelsea Transfer News: Is Victor Moses Making a Move to Stamford Bridge?
Wigan Athletic striker Victor Moses has been strongly linked with a move to Stamford Bridge over the summer transfer window, but will any deal end up taking place between the two parties?
Chelsea have been linked with several other high-profile attackers including Stevan Jovetic and Hulk, so one must ask the question as to whether the inclusion of Moses is really necessary for a side that already boasts the names of Fernando Torres and Eden Hazard.
Throw in to that mix Marko Marin and the potential signing is borderline bizarre.
The prospective deal has been rumored for some time now and it appears that from Moses' end anyway, that progress is slowly being made. The player's agent, Tony Finnigan recently commented via Goal.com that should the two clubs agree on a deal, he would do everything he could to get Moses to Chelsea:
Providing Wigan can agree a fee with Chelsea, I will do all I can to make the move happen for Victor.
Chelsea are believed to have offered a £4 million deal for the Nigerian-born striker, who recently rejected a contract extension at Wigan. However, the Blues may well have to increase their offer if they want to land Moses, with Wigan boss Dave Whelan looking for a figure of around £12 million.
Money aside for the moment, I still can't put together why Chelsea would be chasing after Moses—I can't even understand why they would want Moses in the first place.
As mentioned, this is a club that has Torres, Hazard, Marin as well as Juan Mata, Frank Lampard, Daniel Sturridge, Romelu Lukaku—the list goes on and on. They don't need Moses at Stamford Bridge, and I'm not sure that they're all that fussed about getting him there.
For £5-6 million, I can understand the Blues picking him up to add depth to their squad and develop the 21-year-old but for £12 million, he simply isn't worth it.
Chase Hulk or chase Jovetic—just don't keep chasing Moses.
Chelsea don't need another bench-warming striker; they need another go-to guy up front who can help the Blues remain one of the most competitive forces not just in the English Premier League, but right across the world.
What do you think—should Chelsea be chasing after Victor Moses?
