Having struggled for game time during a season-long loan with Liverpool and now surplus to requirements at parent club Chelsea, Victor Moses is heading to the World Cup with his career in limbo.
But the Nigeria international is still just 23 years of age and more than proved he’s up to Premier League standard during three terms with Wigan, where he found eight goals in 72 top flight appearances.
The winger-forward lacks end product but he’s a phenomenal athlete, offering explosive pace, power and aggression.
Resultantly, he would fit in well with Sam Allardyce’s attritional ethos, whilst Moses’ ability to take on defenders should provide some added (and much-needed) excitement for the Upton Park crowd.
Chelsea will be keen to recoup as much of their original £9million investment as possible however – and recent speculation suggests Newcastle, Everton and Swansea will all be baying for Moses’ services this summer.
