How Chelsea flop can still succeed on Merseyside despite Liverpool loan nightmare

Chelsea winger Victor Moses failed miserably during a loan spell with Liverpool – but could his future still lie on Merseyside?

The Nigerian winger struggled to make an impact with the Reds, starting just six games and scoring only once. It's fair to say that the presence of Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling in the Liverpool attack made it hard for Moses to impress, but even when he did get chances to play, he disappointed.

Chelsea, his parent club, were understandably fuming in January after Moses had been on the fringes of the Liverpool first team, as they hoped the loan deal would help him gain some experience – but the situation didn't even improve after that.

He now returns to Stamford Bridge but his future clearly lies away from Jose Mourinho's side. With the likes of Eden Hazard, Oscar, Willian, Andre Schurrle, Mohamed Salah and the returning Christian Atsu, Thorgan Hazard and Lucas Piazon all vying for places, Moses is way down the pecking order.

That leaves Moses looking for a move away, and whilst an impressive World Cup campaign with Nigeria could increase interest in his signature, one potential destination look to be perfect for him – Everton.

The Toffees were superb this season and impressed on their way to a fifth place finish, but have seen Gerard Deulofeu return to Barcelona upon the expiration of his loan deal – meaning manager Roberto Martinez may be looking to add another winger.

That could lead him to Moses, who of course starred under Martinez at Wigan Athletic. The 23-year-old turned in a number of impressive displays for the Latics as he helped keep them in the Premier League in 2012, before his £10m switch to Chelsea.

In need of playing time and clear direction, Moses risks wasting his talent if he doesn't leave Chelsea – and reuniting with Martinez appears to be his best chance of success right now.
