Chelsea are set to hold crunch talks with Wigan Athletic this weekend over the signing of Victor Moses, according to the Daily Mail.

The Blues travel to the DW Stadium for their Premier League opener on Sunday and it’s believed officials from the two clubs will sit down after the game to finally try and trash out a deal.

The European champions have been tracking the Nigerian attacker all summer but have so far been unable to agree terms with Wigan.

The Latics are demanding £10m – with £7m up front and £3m in add ons – for the 24-year-old, who has only one year left on his current contract.

Chelsea have already agreed personal terms with the player but have refused to meet Wigan owner Dave Whelan’s demands in terms of a transfer fee, and manager Roberto Martinez has now warned he would rather see the player go for nothing next summer than sell him on the cheap now.

‘I would rather lose Victor for nothing next summer than let another club get him for less than he is worth.’

Martinez is quoted as saying in the Daily Mail

The player wants to move to Stamford Bridge, Chelsea want the player, and Wigan understand they have to sell if a decent offer comes in. In all likely-hood, a compromise will be reached on Sunday and the deal will go through next week.

    well, I won’t pay £10m for a 22yr old who has less than a year left on his contract & who isn’t exactly an established star yet if I were Chelsea. Plus, Chelsea doesn’t exactly NEED him now, so that puts ’em in d drivin seat

    Chelsea need a prolific striker like Calvani or Falcao 2 enable us challeage 4 honor dis season. Torres is not yet a tread up front so we need either of dis guy in our attack.

    Moses will be a deadline day transfer or till next summer that’s chelsea target, they want Wigan to dance to their tune, chelsea wants to sign moses for less than 10 or they will sign him for free next summer with the compersation fee.

    Yes, Victor Moses is worth more than 9 million pounds. This fact is undisputed, but how quality is he to match into chelsea’s first team? We have players that can play better in his position. I think chelsea should just forget him and concentrate on bringing in right-back and forward. These are the two positions that need to be occupied at the momment.

    Moses is a proven epl performer so what are we chelseafc waiting for, chelsea should forget about hulk, cavani and falcao their too expensive, chelsea should sign players like fernando lloriente the guy can use his head very well since we have good wingers, we should also go for eden nzeko a proven goal scorer both in epl, robert lawandoski and seydou doumbia these are proven stars

    plz plz plz we don,t need all this cock and bull stories, better you talk to bring Cavani to take the position of Drogba before the transfer window will close, Moses play well but he can not fill the gap Drogba created,we need Cavani or hot striker who can lead us to glory, plz stop Gambling with our feelings, give us what we need to be happy ,cheer up Chelsea fans

    Among all chelsea transfer signings and targets, the only one dat appeals to me is Moses, i wonder y chelsea delays in signing him, dfspite the fact that they undervaluated him they still delay. Pls Ambramovic, we want ur intervesion. Because delay is dangerous .

    in my own opinion moses can b used has a back up strike n we n i say we nt relay on torres 4 crying out loud he wz a good strike before……so we nid to buy a world class strike before the window close like mayb cavani o falcao

    the issue of moses lies on his club bcos is stil useful to them under the conditn of d curent contract, so chlsa shld luk for alternative and fil d gap of drogba.

  27. Mr Abdulfatai

    Wat are u waiting 4,chelsea, moses value more than £10m.. Quickly go and get him. Leave the hulk go 4 Cavani or facao.

    There is no need 4 chelsea to waste time on this matter go and get moses now with a little top on the ten million pounds and also top a little to get Hulk before the transfer window close.
