Not wanted at Chelsea or Liverpool: Three new clubs for Victor Moses

The Nigeria international looks set for a summer move, but which clubs should take a gamble on the attacker?

Since the arrival of Jose Mourinho at Chelsea, Victor Moses has been one of those players that has become surplus to requirements.

Farmed out to Liverpool on loan, the African attacker had a positive start to life at Anfield but has found opportunities to play limited since the turn of the year.

With the Reds unlikely to make his loan move permanent and Moses no more likely to have a role to play at Stamford Bridge, a move looks increasingly likely this summer.

But, which Premier League clubs should look to buy Moses?


The Goodison Park outfit are certainly a possibility for the Nigeria international – despite the move across Merseyside.

Roberto Martinez knows Moses well from their time together at Wigan and was arguably the man that transformed the winger from a raw talent into a player of real ability at Premier League level.

Although the Toffees have the likes of Kevin Mirallas, Steven Pienaar and Aiden McGeady to operate in wide areas, if Barcelona loan star Gerard Deulofeu heads back to Camp Nou, Moses could be a like-for-like replacement.


Newcastle are in real need of a squad upheaval this summer after a poor second half of the season showing, with Moses a potentially affordable and clever signing.

Although the St James’ Park side are in need of creativity in central areas to fill the void of Yohan Cabaye’s departure, having a livewire like Moses on one of the wings would certainly make Alan Pardew’s charges a more-dangerous side.

With the jury out on some of the foreign imports such as Sylvain Marveaux and Gabriel Obertan, who have failed to impress, a player with proven Premier League experience like Moses would be a shrewd acquisition.


The Liberty Stadium outfit will need to bring in a number of players this summer capable of improving the collective if they are to continue being a side with an offensive threat next season.

In the 4-2-3-1 formation most commonly adopted by the Welsh side, Moses would fit right in on one of the wings, with his movement off the ball and pace a key attribute in supporting a lone striker.

The Nigerian needs a club where is going to play regularly, and a move to Swansea could well be a win-win for both parties.
