Juan Cuadrado’s move away from the Bridge was imminent after the arrival of Pedro from Barcelona. But, now as it turns out, Chelsea are reportedly in negotiations with West Ham over the transfer of Victor Moses!
Our preseason hero Victor Moses, who has failed to make an appearance this season due to injury has been touted as a target for the Hammers by various news outlets.
According to reports published in the Telegraph:
“West Ham United are in negotiations with Chelsea for Victor Moses and hoping that Pedro’s outstanding debut will accelerate a potential £7-million deal.
There remains some gap in the respective valuations of the two clubs, with Chelsea wanting around £10 million for Moses even though he again appears peripheral to Jose Mourinho’s first-team plans.”
This is an interesting situation because Victor Moses is homegrown and could be decent option to have on the bench.
As we have seen in the preseason, the Nigerian is an out and out winger who doesn’t cut inside like Willian and is capable of providing width, just like Pedro, while also being good defensively. But then again, if Mourinho doesn’t see him fit into his plans, it’s better we let him go now while he still has some value.
Letting go of Moses would mean we will have 4 quality Attacking Midfielders in Oscar, Hazard, Willian and Pedro while Robert Kenedy and Bertrand Traore will provide the backup. Whereas, Loic Remy and Ramires can also be counted as wingers because more often than not Ramires manages to start over the others anyway.
So, what do you think? Should we let go of Moses after the preseason he has had? Comment your views below!
