Barcelona are interested in Victor Moses.Would you believe that?
Reports are rife in the Spanish media that Barcelona are interested in Victor Moses a sensation at Chelsea in the current Premier League season.
The Nigerian winger has gone from being farmed out on loan to other premier league teams to a super regular under Antonio Conte and has been one of the leading men for the table toppers.
And his performances have not gone unnoticed.
According to Spanish publication Sport, La Liga giants Barcelona are interested in Victor Moses and see the rejuvenated star as the solution to their problematic right-back position.
They have been exploring a number of options due Aleix Vidal’s struggle to adapt to life at the Nou Camp – forcing them to use Sergi Roberto as right-back.
Youngster Marlon was included in their squad instead of Vidal for the Champions League victory at Celtic in midweek, with the Chilean set to depart in January.
Moses has emerged as the surprise option for Barcelona.
They have been following his breakthrough at Chelsea this season intensively – sending scouts to watch him three times.
A January move looks unlikely, with Conte desperate to keep the in-form ace in his eleven as the west London outfit close in on the title.
But a switch in the summer could be on the cards. And what a turnaround that would be for Moses – a man so often forgotten around Stamford Bridge since his arrival in 2012.
His team-mate Branislav Ivanovic has also been watched by Barca, although he would be seen as a more short-term option.
