Liverpool line up swoop for Chelsea ace


Interesting reports have just arrived in the Football Transfer Tavern with Neil Ashton from Mail Online reporting that Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is eyeing up a move for Chelsea winger Victor Moses.

The Nigerian international is part of Jose Mourinho’s squad that has travelled for tonight’s big clash with Manchester United but he has reportedly been told that he can leave Stamford Bridge during the current transfer window.

Liverpool want to take the 22-year-old on loan for the rest of the campaign but they have been told it will take a £2 million fee as the Blues look for the Anfield outfit to pay his £55,000-a-week wages.

Moses has struggled to gain a look in for Mourinho’s side during the summer with a whole host of midfielders favoured in front of him including Eden Hazard, Andre Schurrle and Kevin de Bruyne.

Chelsea have now recruited Brazilian attacking midfielder Willian which has seen the former Wigan Athletic man pushed even further down the pecking order and that could see him departing Stamford Bridge before the transfer window closes on September 2nd.

Rodgers now hopes that his strong working relationship with the new Chelsea boss will help land the talented winger this week with a promise of first team football as the Blues look to cut their wage bill to fit in with the UEFA Financial Fair Play rules. 

Moses joined Chelsea in August 2012 for a fee thought to be £9 million and the player made 43 appearances for the Blues, netting nine times but he may need a spell away from the club to gain regular football this year.

Where will the winger end up this summer? Do Liverpool need another player like Moses? Let us know your thoughts below.
