Chelsea have made a new bid for Wigan forward Victor Moses that could be worth up to £9 million, according to reports.

The Champions League winners have been linked with a move for the 21-year-old for some time and have reportedly already had three offers rejected by Wigan.

Those offers have involved the Latics taking promising midfielder Josh McEachran or Belgium international Romelu Lukaku on loan from Chelsea, but all have been rebuffed.

It is thought that Wigan are looking for around £10m for Moses and Chelsea’s latest bid, which consists of £6m plus a further £3m in performance-related add-ons may be enough for chairman Dave Whelan to accept.

Despite already acquiring a number of attacking players such as Eden Hazard, Marko Marin and Oscar, Moses is thought to appeal to the Stamford Bridge outfit as he would qualify as a home-grown player for the Champions League.
