Reports today claim that Victor Moses is looking for a move away from Wigan Athletic and that has, in turn, put clubs such as Spurs and Liverpool on alert. The player has been instrumental in steering his club from safety and this seems to be a classic case of whether, at 21, he wants to stay put or whether he feels ready for a bigger challenge.
Wigan manager Roberto Martinez hopes he stays and suggests that he would be better off at his present club for now at least.
“Sometimes we forget that he’s only 21. The potential is incredible. From technical and tactical aspects he’s improved a lot,” Martinez is quoted as saying.
“But there’s still a long way to go. His potential is so huge, he can go as high as he wants to. You can’t stop players moving as long as the club gets a fair price. It would be unrealistic of us to think we’re not going to lose players.”
So, as we know, he’s mostly a left winger but Moses can also play in other positions too. Is he the alternative to Eden Hazard in that respect?
Reports discuss a range of fees from £10m to £15m but is this the bold signing that Harry alluded to?
