Report: Tottenham Hotspur turn their attentions to Chelsea outcast Victor Moses

Chelsea’s Victor Moses is attracting interest from Stoke City and Tottenham Hotspur.

According to the latest reports in the Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur have turned their attentions to Chelsea outcast Victor Moses as they bid to boost their attacking options this summer.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is actively looking to provide centre-forward Harry Kane with both more ammunition and possibly much-needed competition ahead of next season.

As per a previous report in France Football, a deal for Monaco’s Anthony Martial looked likely but the youngster has since signed a new contract at the club, all-but ending that particular saga.

As such, fresh reports state that Spurs have now turned their attentions closer to home as they begin to rival Stoke City for the signature of Chelsea outcast Victor Moses.

“Tottenham are trying to sign Chelsea winger Victor Moses. He is now considering his options, with little chance of breaking into Mourinho's first team,” the report states.

What would Victor Moses offer Tottenham Hotspur?

Once a highly-rated youngster at Crystal Palace and later Wigan, Moses has lost his way somewhat since then following his inability to make an impression at parent club Chelsea and later Liverpool on loan.

The 24-year-old spent last season on loan at Stoke, impressing boss Mark Hughes and prompting the Potters to consider buying him permanently this summer, as per the report in the Mirror.

With just three goals and three assists in 19 Premier League matches, many at White Hart Lane would arguably wish Spurs to at least consider other avenues before opting for Victor Moses.

However, the North Londoners lack ball carriers with players such as Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen and Nacer Chadli all good passers of the ball, but lacking in real purpose and drive.

Moses averaged 3.3 successful dribbles per match last season, more than any of Spurs’ current squad as Lamela’s average of 1.7 topped the list at White Hart Lane.
