Chelsea to make second offer for Wigan’s Moses

Chelsea are to make a second offer for Wigan Athletic forward Victor Moses after their first approach was turned down by Latics owner Dave Whelan, the Daily Mail has reported.

The Mail adds that the Champions League winners’ first bid of around £4m was summarily rejected, with the next attempt to be worth in the region of £5m. Moses is also said to have decided upon Stamford Bridge as his preferred destination, ahead of interest from Queens Park Rangers and Liverpool.

Wigan have offered Moses a new, long-term contract with wages of £20,000 per week to replace the Nigerian’s current deal which expires in a year’s time, but the former Crystal Palace man has told Wigan he wants to move on, according to the Mail.

Whelan was dismissive of Chelsea’s first offer, describing it as unrealistic, and explaining that Wigan are under no pressure to sell Moses even though his contract is winding down as, since the player is under 24, Wigan are guaranteed a fee even if he leaves at the end of his current deal next summer.
