Chelsea and Liverpool go head to head over Victor Moses

Two heavyweights in the Premiership want the Wigan winger in their ranks for next season

After Chelsea’s bid of £4 million for Wigan’s Victor Moses was rejected out of hand last week, the European champions seem to have made an improved offer of £6 million for the winger. But Chelsea is now not the only club that are showing serious interest in the thrice-capped international as Anfield giants Liverpool have also joined the chase.

Moses has variously said that he is ready to make the move to a bigger club and it seems that the Nigerian’s dream will come to pass over where he will be plying his trade for the 2012-13 season.

The Nigerian international netted six times for Wigan last season and is comfortable playing on either flank as well as off the main striker.

New Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers had hoped to sign Gylfi Sigurdsson but the Icelandic midfielder is closing in on a move to Tottenham and he will have to look elsewhere for more attacking talent.

The 21-year-old has previously revealed he would be interested in a move to Liverpool if the opportunity arose.

“There's a link for me to Liverpool, and some other clubs in England. If the offer is cool, why not, I will move." Moses told MTN Football.

Moses looks set to leave Wigan this summer after he rejected the chance to double his wages, and club chairman Dave Whelan is not impressed with his attempts to leave the DW Stadium.
