Report: Tottenham submit first bid to sign Victor Moses from rivals Chelsea

Tottenham have reportedly stepped up their pursuit of Chelsea winger Victor Moses.

According to the Daily Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur have lodged an £8m bid for Chelsea winger Victor Moses in the hope of a deal this summer.

Having snapped up three defenders this summer in Kieran Trippier, Kevin Wimmer and Toby Alderweireld, manager Mauricio Pochettino must now turn his attentions to other areas of the Spurs side.

A winger with the ability to drive at defences could be on his wish list, and it appears that Chelsea's Moses is one of his top targets to fill that role.

Moses, 24, spent last season on loan at Stoke City having slipped down the pecking order at Chelsea, and produced impressive performances under Mark Hughes.

Those displays appear to have caught Pochettino's eye, with The Mirror suggesting that Spurs have lodged an £8m bid to try and bring Moses to White Hart Lane this summer.

It's unclear whether Chelsea would accept that bid, but with seemingly little future at Stamford Bridge, Tottenham could well seal a deal for the Nigerian international.

Is Moses good enough for Tottenham?

Moses enjoyed a great season for Stoke, but it came off the back of a disappointing loan spell with Liverpool, where he struggled to make any sort of impact under Brendan Rodgers.

That has led to many believing that Moses is a mid-table Premier League player, who is unable to make the step up to a top six club.

Tottenham seemingly disagree with that notion, and given how all of their current wingers prefer to cut inside, Moses' pace and willingness to hit the byline could work well for Pochettino.
