When Victor Moses signed for Chelsea from Wigan in 2012, much was anticipated from the winger. However, a horrible loan spell at Liverpool threatened to end his Chelsea career prematurely. The Nigerian was then loaned to the Potters at the start of the last season and things have turned around rather quickly from there!
Hampered with untimely injuries, Victor Moses still managed to impress with Stoke City last season. Jose Mourinho reportedly wanted the winger back at the Bridge in January, but the Nigerian opted to stay with the Potters for the time being.
Stoke boss Mark Hughes is obviously a huge admirer of the winger and wanted to sign him on a permanent basis this summer in a deal involving Asmir Begovic. It was reported that Moses didn’t want to go back to Stoke City for some reasons and as it turns out now, Chelsea might after all be interested in keeping him around the first team squad! According to Mark Hughes:
“I think Chelsea have a view on Victor. What they’re thinking we believe is that they would possibly like to keep him.
“If they go into the market again that could change that idea.
“Victor obviously came to us last year and did exceptionally well for us. There were a couple of injuries that hampered him unfortunately, but he showed enough in his time with us that it made Chelsea very aware of the talent they have and what Victor could offer.
“It could be that Victor now plays a part at Chelsea.”

Counting Juan Cuadrado into the mix, we currently have 5 Attacking Midfielders for 3 positions. Competing for four trophies, we probably need another AM for the squad depth. Given that Cuadrado has still to show his true potential, it wouldn’t entirely be a bad idea to have Victor Moses as an option. The Nigerian is strong, physical has an eye for goal and if he could work on his defensive side, he might well be in Jose Mourinho’s plan for next season. Well, I guess, this pre-season will decide the fate of Victor Moses!
