As Chelsea prepare to let Moses depart – where are Southampton?

Chelsea full-back Victor Moses is nearing a move to Fenerbahce.

According to The Daily Mail, the Blues star could leave the club in the next 24 hours on loan.

Moses has fallen out of favour at Stamford Bridge under Maurizio Sarri, who has reverted back to a flat back four.

The Italian has opted to go with Cesar Azpilicueta at right-back, with Davide Zappacosta arguably ahead of the Nigerian in the pecking order.

Moses has made five appearances in all competitions, including just two substitute appearances in the Premier League.

A club that should have been monitoring this situation is Southampton.

 

Missing a trick

Southampton are set to lose Cedric Soares this month, with the Portuguese full-back said to be locked in ‘advanced talks’ with Inter Milan (Sky Sports).

Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl had suggested he plans to trim down his squad this month and it looks like Soares is a player who could be off.

Hasenhuttl may yet have a replacement in mind, but it seems like a missed opportunity for them with Moses leaving the Premier League.

The ex-Nigeria international is still only 27, and could potentially do a fine job for the relegation-threatened side.

Moses was impressive during Chelsea’s title surge in 2016/17 under Antonio Conte – he’s simply fallen victim to a new manager with different ideas.
