Chelsea are looking for a new winger following the impending departure of Nigeria’s Victor Moses to Selhurst Park
Moses spent three years in Palace senior side from 2007-2010 before making the switch to Wigan Athletic.
Chelsea’s website announced on Thursday that Moses, Chelsea and Crystal Palace are on advanced stage of discussion.
Moses has hardly featured for Chelsea this season, and his future has been very much in question ever since the end of the summer transfer window.
But despite that, he’s got the perfect outlet it seems – a return for Crystal Palace although it would leave Chelsea a little short in that part of the pitch and the Blues are scouting for replacement probably in Italy.
Roy Hodgson’s team are always looking to add top talent, and while Moses isn’t a great fit for Maurizio Sarri’s system, he’s the kind of January signing that could change Palace’s season for the better.
At this stage it seems like a smart deal for all parties – and the Blues are scouting for replacement probably in Italy.
