Chelsea are on the brink of officially completing the signing of Wigan's Nigerian international attacker Victor Moses after weeks of speculation.
The two clubs have agreed on a £9 million fee and all that's left now is to tie up the terms and for the player to complete his medical, which will be done over the weekend with an official announcement coming on Monday.
21-year-old Moses has been eager to push the deal through and has now been handed his dream move to the European Champions. The highly gifted player has huge potential and has been scouted by Chelsea for some time.
Wigan owner Dave Whelan had already rejected three low bids from Chelsea ranging from £2 million to £5 million. On Monday Whelan met Chelsea Chief Exectutive Ron Gourlay and laid down his asking price, Gourlay then went away to ponder the price and finally came back to Whelan on Friday agreeing the £9 million fee.
Moses who was born in Nigeria, was also offered the chance to play football for England being an English national since 8 years old. He opted to play for his home land team, but he has good experience of the Premier League and has the physical attributes to be successful.
His versatility is what attracted Chelsea, he has the ability to play anywhere across the front line or as an attacking midfielder.
Chelsea face Manchester City in the Charity Shield on Sunday in what is considered as the start of the season, Moses will be watching his new team mates and will be expected to join the likes of other new boys Eden Hazard, Marko Marin and Oscar Dos Santos in training next week.741418
