Victor Moses has been training with the Blues ahead of the new Premier League season.

But is a Stamford Bridge stay the best move for Moses or Chelsea?

After another mega summer of transfers, competition for places is now rifer than ever within Jose Mourinho's squad.

Eden Hazard, Oscar, Cesc Fabregas, Willian, Andre Schurrle, Mohamed Salah and more are all possibilities for Mourinho in attacking positions behind the main striker this season - and even those forwards aren't necessarily guaranteed games with the current state of play.

For 23-year-old Moses, then, one has to fear for his place in the Chelsea side.

After signing from Wigan Athletic in August 2012, the Nigerian was utilised occasionally by Roberto Di Matteo and then Rafa Benitez. Moses thus made 23 Premier League appearances in his debut season and also played a big part in their triumphant Europa League campaign.

In the league, though, that only amounted to 1,124 minutes of playing time, while his loan move to Liverpool the following season saw his playing time cut to just 644 Premier League minutes - despite Brendan Rodgers' squad being relatively thin on the ground in terms of depth.

How will Moses have any better chance of breaking into the Chelsea team this year? Indeed, a move away simply seems the only option for the Nigerian.

The 23-year-old needs to get his career back on track fast, with his international form now suffering from his lack of game time at club level, too. At the World Cup, Moses produced a poor showing and was dropped for Michel Babatunde.

For Chelsea, meanwhile, keeping a player on the books and paying him wages when he stands little chance of ever playing makes no sense, either. And selling the winger would give them another boost in obeying Uefa's Financial Fair Play rules.
