Chelsea are nearing in on the contract of Wigan forward Victor Moses after high-level talks between the clubs.Chelsea have stepped up their chase for Victor Moses with a new fresh approach for the Wigan forward.
Wigan chairman Dave Whelan met Chelsea chief executive Ron Gourlay on Tuesday as the clubs made an attempt to agree a deal for the 21-year-old.
It is understood Chelsea have been told to match Wigan’s £8.5m valuation for Moses or walk away from the deal.
Still blues remain hopeful of bringing in Moses in their community Shield squad to play against Manchester City on Sunday.
Having started some way apart in their valuations of the former England Under-21 international, the clubs appear to be close to agreeing terms.
Wigan have dropped their asking price from an initial £10m to a figure Chelsea now consider to be more reasonable.Chelsea have already had three bids rejected for Moses, with Whelan holding out for £10million.
Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo is understood to be extremely keen to bring in Moses, who played superbly & scored six Premier League goals in the last season, but owner Roman Abramovich will have the final say on this.
“Chelsea are also pondering a renewed bid for Bayer Leverkusen’s Andre Schurrle having already spent almost £70m in recent months”.
