Victor Moses Should Move To Liverpool …Not London

Having had a big hand in helping Wigan pull of the great escape again last season a host of teams are looking at Nigerian born winger, Victor Moses, with only 12 months left on his contract. Chelsea are very interested in the youngster but with all the midfielders they have bought this summer it’s hard to see where he would fit in. There is no doubt the young man has a lot of raw talent and showed up many of the big teams defence last year, especially Arsenal’s in Wigan’s infamous win at the Emirates. So where should Victor Moses go next if he should leave at all?

I have picked three teams that he is likely to join and the reasons why I think it would make as much sense as Piers Morgan being castrated. Enjoy!

  • Chelsea:

The big bucks of Roman Abramovich seem to be the most likely place for Moses according to reports on the BBC but I would worry about his growth as a player if he joined the London side. Victor Moses has progressed as a player because Wigan have been able to offer him guaranteed first team football, something that would not be available in the cut throat dressing room of Chelsea.

We have seen it many times before in recent years; a young player has a superb season for a lesser Premier League team and Chelsea become interested because he is in season, as they’d say in the fashion industry. They buy him, never play him and he eventually leaves losing some very important years in his career. It happened to Scott Parker, Glen Johnson and Steve Sidwell. Some of them recovered eventually and some just faded away.

Although this is the most likely destination due to the financial factors involved, I only think this move would work if Chelsea loaned him back to Wigan for another season to hone his skills.

  • Arsenal:

I already mentioned the infamous victory at the Emirates for Wigan last season and for those of you that don’t remember click here. It was during that match that Victor Moses made Bacary Sagna look a fool and was involved in both Wigan goals despite being able to grab a hat-trick. With rumours of Theo Walcott refusing to go away as his contract negotiations take a back seat whilst the RVP situation goes on, Victor Moses could form a wonderful partnership with Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Even if Walcott stays Moses would do well at Arsenal where many youngsters tend to flourish rather than let there talent dry up, like at another London team. At a price of about £9million he is even in Wenger’s price range.

  • Liverpool:

Rumours of transfer activity at Anfield this season are as expected as Joey Barton making statements about any subject that other people are talking about. The Daniel Agger saga looks to be the new one that will keep football fans in suspense till the thrilling conclusion later in the month and if Rodgers gets the funds available he should certainly reinvest in another winger to add depth to a shallow pool including Stewart Downing.

Moses fits the bill perfectly for Liverpool; He is young, cheap, won’t have excessive wages and is used to playing the passing game used by Rodgers and Martinez last term. The use of another winger could also rejuvenate Downing’s so far poor career in red giving the Anfield faithful more to smile about. This and the fact Moses is used to playing for relegation candidates means he won’t mind only playing in the Europa League.

Scott Sinclair maybe the number one target for Rodger’s Liverpool but a cheaper alternative may benefit him more.
