Chelsea's signing of Wigan star Victor Moses is a brilliant move for the future of the London club, but the transfer could also have a strong impact on the Blues' 2012-13 season.

Finding a spot in the starting XI will be a challenge for Moses since Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has tremendous attacking depth. However, it's likely that Moses will get enough time on the pitch this season to show the Chelsea fans why he's going to play a large part in the club's future.

With Eden Hazard, Juan Mata, Ryan Bertrand, and Moses all capable of adding goal scoring and pace from the wings, Chelsea will be very dangerous on the flanks for years to come.

Versatility is also a very valuable part of Moses' skill set. He can play on the outside as a winger, a striker, and even as a central defender. Not many players can hold their own in that many positions.

Whenever Chelsea need to make a change because they need a goal, or are protecting a lead, Moses can be brought on to the pitch in either situation. This is what will make him an important part of the club's present and future success.

Moses also has a wealth of experience in English football. He has appeared in over 50 Premier League games in his career, and also spent a few years in the Championship with Crystal Palace.

The amount of great young talent that the club has signed following their historic Champions League triumph in May has been phenomenal. The squad was aging, and Di Matteo made it a priority to add top young talent to help the team now, and going forward.

With Moses now in the fold, Chelsea has even more players who have the skill and versatility needed to dominate in the Premier League. The future of the Blues is very bright, thanks to young players such as Victor Moses.
