Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan has announced his side are willing to sell Victor Moses to Chelsea provided they meet a £10 million asking price, reports The Daily Mirror.
There is a possibility however, it could become an £8 million fee with Josh McEachran going in the opposite direction, something Whelan is set to agree to. ‘We’re looking to reach £10 million. If that means £8 million and some add-ons, that’s fine’ announced the 75 year old.
The 21 year old Nigerian has been linked with a move to Stamford Brige since the transfer window opened at the beginning of the month, and would mark their fourth signing of the summer, having already brought Marko Marin, Eden Hazard and Oscar to West London.
Roberto Di Matteo and Roman Abramovich both seem highly intent on further strengthening their Champions League winning side, and the arrival of Moses will go some way to replacing Didier Drogba, who left the Blues for a spell in China.
Having been a consistent starter in the Wigan side under Roberto Martinez last season, the youthful forward can offer Chelsea plenty of Premier League experience as well as raw talent should the signing be completed in the next few days.
