Tottenham Hotspur linked to forgotten winger

I like Victor Moses. He's an easy guy to cheer for -- his back story will endear you to him even if his play isn't of an enormously high level -- and while he's never been a star at Chelsea he did enough in his first season with the Blues to at least feel like he was contributing. Plus he was awful at Liverpool, which is only ever a plus in my book. That said, he's probably not quite at the level where he'll be helping us really push for the title or Champions League, and it's unsurprising that he's being linked to a permanent move away.

The obvious destination is Stoke City, where he spent last year on loan and did very well for himself. But perhaps he did too well at the Britannia, because the latest is that bigger clubs are circling. Tottenham Hotspur need some help out wide in light of two disappointing seasons from Erik Lamela, and the Mirror have them trying to pick up the Nigerian international to boost their options. Spurs are being linked to pretty much everyone of Moses' calibre right now though, so I'd guess this is probably at best a shotgun approach and at worst a way to hardball Everton over, say, Kevin Mirallas.

Still, it's difficult to imagine Moses has a future at Chelsea, so I'd imagine he ends up sold somewhere this summer. Hopefully he'll land on his feet -- with his exploits last season he should be able to find a club no problem.
