Report: Liverpool complete deal for Chelsea’s Victor Moses
Liverpool have agreed a £1million fee with Chelsea to take attacker Victor Moses on-loan for the remainder of the 2013/14 season, according to the Guardian tonight (Saturday).
The Nigerian international has reportedly already undergone his medical on Merseyside and will be in the crowd at Anfield for Sunday’s Premier League clash against Manchester Utd.
The Guardian‘s Dominic Fifield writes:
There is no option for Liverpool to make the deal permanent next summer, an indication that Moses could yet have a long-term future at Stamford Bridge.
Moses was bought by the West London club from Wigan Athletic for around £9million in the summer of 2012 when Roberto Di Matteo was still Chelsea boss. However, Moses has made just 23 appearances, scoring once for the Blues since.
Now with Jose Mourinho as boss and a transfer spending flurry over the summer, Moses has fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.
Liverpool are also hoping to complete deals for defenders Mamadou Sakho and Tiago Ilori this weekend, as well as pursuing their interest for Aston Villa goalkeeper Shay Given before the summer transfer window closes on Monday night.
