Clarke admits interest in Chelsea ace

Victor Moses - ChelseaWest Bromwich Albion manager Steve Clarke has admitted he is interested in bringing out-of-favour Chelsea striker Victor Moses to the Hawthorns, reports the Daily Star.

The 22-year-old Nigerian international has fallen down the Stamford Bridge pecking order following an array of high-profile arrivals, including Andre Schurrle, Samuel Eto’o and Willian, and is looking for a move to gain regular Premier League football this season.

And former Chelsea assistant Clarke has revealed Moses is free to leave Chelsea on a loan this summer, but admits he is not completely confident a deal can be struck.

He told the Daily Star: “Moses is available to come out and he’s a player we would be interested in.

“But I can’t say I’m confident in landing him or any player at the moment.”

Despite Clarke’s close ties with Chelsea and returning boss Jose Mourinho, he will have to stave off competition from fellow Premier League rivals Liverpool, Everton and Southampton if he is to be successful in bringing Moses to the Midlands before Monday’s transfer window deadline.

And Brendan Rodger’s Liverpool currently appear to be leading the race for the striker, with a loan offer worth £2million reportedly on the table.

Moses joined Chelsea from Wigan Athletic in a deal reported to be worth £9million last August and scored 10 goals in 43 appearances in all competitions last term.
