Crystal Palace eyeing move for Chelsea’s Victor Moses

Moses out of favour under Sarri

Since Maurizio Sarri took over at Chelsea they have looked a much better side.

Chelsea are currently 4th in the Premier League and enjoyed a solid start to the season.

Their most recent game has also just seen them beat Manchester City 2-0, City were unbeaten in 15 league games this season before facing Chelsea.

One player who is not benefiting from Sarri’s presence, however, is Victor Moses.

Moses has made just six appearances across all competitions this season for Chelsea, only one of those was as a starter.

Crystal Palace want Moses back

So, it is not too surprising to learn that Crystal Palace are eyeing a January move for the Nigerian.

Moses was an integral member of Antonio Conte’s side while he was Chelsea boss, operating largely as a right-wing-back in a five at the back formation.

However, since Sarri took over, he has moved to a four at the back with Cesar Azpilicueta returning to his natural right-back position.

As a result, Moses now looks surplus to requirements at Chelsea. The Blues are reportedly willing to sell him for £12m.

Crystal Palace are having a poor start to the 2018/19 season.

After 16 games they have earned just 12 points and currently sit just two points above the relegation zone.

So, it is likely Palace will want to improve their squad this January with Moses looking like a good option for the Eagles.
