Wolves should steer clear of a bid for Chelsea outcast Moses during January window
Wolves are one of three Premier League clubs with an interest in signing Victor Moses from Chelsea during next month’s transfer window, according to the Evening Standard.
They report that two of Moses’ former clubs, Crystal Palace and West Ham United, are ready to offer Moses a route out of Stamford Bridge, while allowing him to remain in London.
But they also claim that Nuno Santo’s side are also monitoring his situation with interest after a season that has seen the Nigerian international slip from the first team picture at Stamford Bridge following the appointment of Maurizio Sarri.
So where would Moses fit in at Molineux? He was exceptional as a right wing-back under Antonio Conte, but Matt Doherty has been one of Wolves’ outstanding performers this season in that position.
Moses would be an expensive player to bring in purely as cover for the Republic of Ireland international, and he does not really have the profile to play in the wide forward roles in Santo’s 3-4-2-1 system.
Jonny Castro can always come across and cover in that role and Wolves should have other priorities than a high-profile backup choice at right wing-back in the forthcoming window.
