Chelsea are rumoured to be within touching distance of the signing of Victor Moses from Wigan. We also want our man in time for Sunday's Community Shield clash with Manchester City, if today's reports are to be believed.
Apparently Chelsea chief executive Ron Gourlay has made contact with Wigan chairman Dave Whelan in an attempt to try to thrash out an agreement. Wigan have so far played hardball, but it seems Chelsea are intent on signing the Wigan schemer.
Whelan's revised asking price of £8.5 million was initially rebuffed by the hierarchy at Stamford Bridge, but a structured deal to this amount could tempt Wigan to sell.
The two clubs are not too far apart in their current valuations for the former England Under-21 international, who now plays for Nigeria at senior level.
Losing Moses would be a major blow for Wigan as he is certain a talent, but Whelan says he won't stand in the player's way providing the £8.5 million fee - down from an initial £10 million price tag - is met.
'I have spoken to Chelsea's chief executive and they are easy to deal with, we have told them the price and they will come back and agree it or not,' Whelan said.
'We would much prefer the player to sign a new contract and stay but he wants to go to Chelsea and its a good club so we cannot stand in his way.'
So, it seems Victor Moses could be on his way! It certainly fits our new mould of buying younger talent, and he'll also qualify as home grown, which is obviously important these days.
Victor Moses to Chelsea, looks like it may be happening.
