Chelsea are closing in on the signing of Liverpool target Victor Moses, according to the Mirror.

The report claims the Blues will try and force through the deal in the next 24 hours by increasing their offer to £7m plus add-ons, which they hope will be enough to persuade Wigan in to a sale.

The total package could be worth £10m to Wigan, which will represent a huge profit on the fee they paid Crystal Palace in 2010, and the Mirror believe it will be too good an offer for chairman Dave Whelan to turn down.

The Latics are desperate to get as much money up front as they can, with former club Crystal Palace due 20 percent of any sale, and Roberto Martinez is eager to get his hands on some funds to work with this summer.

Roberto Di Matteo has already welcomed back many of his players to pre-season training but is keen to add Moses to his squad as soon as possible and wants to tie up the deal quickly in order to stave off interest from Liverpool.

Brendan Rodgers is also interested in signing the 21-year-old attacker this summer but the Reds look set to miss out after dragging their heels over making an official approach to Wigan.

FT Verdict

It seems the transfer of Moses to Chelsea is only a matter of time. Personally, i think a move to Liverpool would suit him better as he’ll get more playing time, but it’s always going to be difficult to turn down the European champions.

Moses would have slotted in well on the right side of Liverpool’s attack, but it looks like they have been too slow to act and Chelsea have beaten them to the punch. Whoever ends up signing him, they will have an excellent young prospect in Moses.

    I think he’ll be a good buy and he will only bring out the best In sturridge cos you can guaruntee Moses will be letting him know he wants his spot but it won’t be like hulk someone who would cost the club alot so will be expected to start really and he’s more experienced and established but Moses/Sturridge it’s a good fight both up and coming young talents. I don’t care how Sturridge played last year sometimes he was terrific sometimes unbearable but it’s all a learning curve he’s got experienced players round him too guide him and I think he will be more of a team player next year, I’ve got no doubt Moses is a team player. Maicon too be signed by the weekend, and i think we need modric or Moutiniho and that’s buissness done for the summer crack on with pre season and start the premier league with a bang. Up the chels

      I have to agree w you here as well and simply because I think it’s a terrible idea to sell sturridge. He has had one year in Chelsea’s starting line up and was our 2nd leading scorer playing out of position…I think the signing of mosses will create good young competition between the two and allow both to grow and develop

    mostly agree ste. moses represents better value for money with PL experience. Sturridge needs to improve quick on teamwork or face the exit door. maicon or any decent RB will do but something is needed. as for modric or moutinho i wouldn’t move for one of them. same thing as saying josh will never play for 1st team again. we’ve got depth in the 2 ‘midfield’ players in the 4231 formation lampard/meireles/mikel/romeu/ramires/essien/mccehran/malouda although i would expect to see essien/malouda and maybe meireles move on. But definitely agree chelsea need to finish thier business early and get a full pre-season done with a full squad, and not try to integrate new players as the season is already underway (like last season)

    @rmd should buy hulk to replace drogba,walcout for malouda,modric or affellay for creativeness

    Victor Moses would be a great addition to the squad to give the Manager alternatives throughout the season. He is certainly better better than Kalou or Malouda. The problem remains that we have still not replaced Drogba and Torres cannot be expected to be our sole main striker all season for all games. Sturridge is too greedy and not good enough as a central striker and is why CFC have been so keen to try and do a deal for Hulk.

    I dont knw y do v need a striker. I belive tht v hve enough strikers who have played internationaly i.e Lukaku, sturridge, Moses, Torres. All v need is a good RB. N I belive Micon will bring Class, Power & Experience.

    I think moses is a kind of player every team will like to sign, cause, is a strong player just like our unforgetable drogba. And i will be so glad if i can see him add to the squad this summer.

    Chelsea please sell sturridge.He is not a team player and his arrogance will make him never learn.

    Moses will definately be a good buy,To me bringing Maicon will be misplace of philosophy considering his age,think we need a good young RB who can play week in week out not some old RB who will be pron to injuries and find it deficuit to cope with the pace of the league.
