With the Blues closing in on the signing of the 21-year-old, the Italian has praised the guidance Latics boss Roberto Martinez has given the Nigeria international
Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has confirmed that Wigan attacker Victor Moses is on the brink of a move to Stamford Bridge.
The two Premier League clubs have agreed a fee, reported to be around €11.4 million (£9m), and the midfielder will now undergo a medical at the club.
"The clubs have agreed terms now. The player will have a medical. Subject to that he might become a Chelsea player," Di Matteo told reporters.
"Roberto Martinez has done a wonderful job with this player since signing him. He's really developed him.
"He had a very good season last year and hopefully we can progress his development.
Di Matteo talked up the ability of the young attacker and highlighted Chelsea’s determination to acquire Moses’ talent as evidence of his future potential.
He added: "He can play on either wing and will give the team width. He has good dribbling ability, has pace and is powerful.
"We've tried very hard to get this player. We like him very much. He's young and hopefully he'll be the future of the club.”
