Wolverhampton Wanderers have been one of the busiest team in the transfer market, and they are looking to do some more business in the last few hours. The Daily Mirror is claiming that the runaway Championship winners are targeting Chelsea‘s winger cum fullback, Victor Moses. The Nigerian was regular under Antonio Conte as he played in the right wingback role. However, with the new manager coming in, there can be a change in philosophy and the 27-year-old might find it difficult to find a place for himself in the first team.
Nuno Espirito Santo is looking to bring in more competition for Matt Doherty who will be expected to start in the right wingback role. The fact that Moses already has good experience of playing in that position for the Blues, this can turn out to be another shrewd addition from the West Midlands outfit.
The Nigerian was also part of the World Cup squad for his country, and he has the experience of playing in over 200 games in the Premier League.
Moses started as a winger, but his end product has always been under question as he often fails to score or create anything after getting into good positions. That is one of the reasons why Conte went on to deploy him in a wingback role. He is perseverant and is a tireless worker, though, while going forward, he leaves a lot to be desired.
Nevertheless, an experienced player like him will add a lot of depth and stability to Santo’s squad. Though this move will not be good news for the likes of Phil Ofosu-Ayeh and Dominic Iorfa who would have been hoping to find a place in the squad if Doherty got injured or suspended. With just a few hours remaining, it remains to be seen whether Wolves will be able to pull off this signing.
