Crystal Palace are reportedly confident that they will sign Chelsea’s Victor Moses in the New Year to bolster their options at Selhurst Park.
According to the Evening Standard, the Eagles are “confident” that they are winning the race in January to sign the 28-year-old ahead of Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham.
The report details that Palace believe the Nigeria international will favour a move, as he came through their academy as a youngster and eventually left in 2010.
Moses is a versatile ace that played a major role in Chelsea winning the 2016/17 Premier League title at right wing-back and has proven he can play anywhere on the flank.
He’s a safe pair of hands in defence at full-back, but has shown his attacking talents on the internatonal stage and that is where manager Roy Hodgson should play him if he does join in January.
Palace could end up having a dazzling right wing combination of full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Moses for the second half of the season.
Both are extremely athletic individuals that can shine in the top flight and it would give the south London club some real energy on the wing.
Moses should be entering the peak years of his career now and Palace need some extra attacking ammunition to help them in the final third.
His dribbling and crossing would be a boost to the side, while he could lend a hand to Wan-Bissaka too in defending.
