Chelsea currently sit pretty at the top of the Premier League, undefeated, and with one of the best squads the league has to offer. The density in their midfield and the flexibility in positions which some of their midfielders can play in means players like Victor Moses, currently out on loan at Stoke City, might not have a future at the club for much longer.
In this season so far, he has achieved three assists from five league appearances for the Potters. If he keeps this form up, interest in him will increase. At the moment, though, the Nigerian has been sidelined due to a thigh injury he picked up against Sunderland, hindering his progression.
Moses, who is only 23 believe it or not, has been playing in the Premier League since January 2010 having played for Wigan and Chelsea, and on loan at Liverpool and Stoke City. Still, the Nigerian hasn’t played in the league under Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho since he returned to manage The Pensioners.
With this in mind, it is likely Moses is on his way out of Chelsea, and here are FIVE possible transfer destinations! Click below on Victor and all will be revealed.
Moses was linked with Everton before they completed the loan move for his fellow Chelsea player Christian Atsu. The Ghanaian has only made two appearances so far this season for the Toffees and has struggled to make an impact so a permanent move for him isn’t on the table at the moment. With Steven Pienaar being 32 years old and with his form dropping each season, Everton will want to try and find a replacement for him and Moses would be perfect.
His current form could entice Stoke City to turn their loan move of Moses into a permanent deal. With three assists from five league appearances, the Nigerian has been one of their best players so far this season. If he continues with this form, this could encourage Potters manager Mark Hughes to make his move permanent
West Bromwich Albion
The Nigerian was linked with a move to West Brom before his loan move to Stoke City this past summer. A move to The Hawthorns would see Moses link up with fellow international team mate Victor Anichebe. It could also see him pair up nicely with current inform striker Saido Berahino, providing the assists to his goals.
The Magpies also needs someone to provide assists for Papiss Cisse in order to remove them from the relegation scrap and win some games this season. Moses could be the solution, and replacement, for Gabriel Obertan, who is close to entering his final year of his contract. Prior to this season, the Frenchman has underperformed with the Magpies and could be on his way out if he doesn’t help Newcastle United avoid relegation. Newcastle may look for a permanent deal in January if they can convince Chelsea to terminate Moses’ loan deal at Stoke City.
Moses was also linked to Aston Villa this past summer and Villa is also a side who are struggling to find the net. They are likely to want a permanent deal in January if none of their current players step up. They have been gradually sliding down the Premier League table since the start of the season and need to act fast to stop disaster from happening. The Nigerian would provide healthy competition on the wings for Andreas Weinmann, Kieran Richardson, Gabriel Agbonlahor and Charles N’Zogbia.
