According to The Mirror, Wigan have named their price regarding prized asset Victor Moses – who they value at £10million.
The 21-year-old was in negotiations over a new contract but talks have since broke down with the Latics, alerting Liverpool and Tottenham to his potential availability in the summer.
After previously showing his talents at Crystal Palace – following a run of 5 goals in 8 games, he was bought in the January transfer window of 2010 for £2.5million. Since the departure of Charles N’Zogbia in the summer, Moses has this season become a regular starter for Wigan and is now their most valued player. This season he was also capped for the Nigerian national team, playing in a friendly for the Super Eagles against Rwanda – this after previously representing England from the U-16’s to the U-21’s.
Moses has been a constant shining light for a resurgent Wigan this term. The Latics struggled through most of the season until recently a change of formation from Roberto Martinez has transformed their fortunes – recent form has seen them surge towards safety in recent weeks. Something which Moses has played a key role in, showing his notable talents by pitching in with crucial assists and goals to aid the Wigan cause.
Wigan themselves have admitted it could be difficult to hold onto their star man with manager Martinez saying “It happened last year with Charles N’Zogbia and it would be unrealistic of us to think we will never lose players”.
The forward has obvious ability which could see potential suitors willing to pay the £10million asking price for his services. With age on his side, Moses has plenty of time to develop his game with a supposedly bigger club which could see him become a leading figure in the Premier League in years to come.
