Cardiff join Crystal Palace and Fulham in Victor Moses pursuit — report

Another party interested in the forgotten Chelsea winger/wing-back

According to the Evening Standard, Cardiff have joined Crystal Palace and Fulham in the chase for Victor Moses this winter.

Moses, who had been a regular in Chelsea’s starting lineups during the previous two seasons with Antonio Conte at the helm, has barely had any minutes on the pitch under new coach Maurizio Sarri. The 28-year-old’s last appearance for the club was two months ago, in a 33-minute cameo during the 3-1 win over BATE Borisov in the Europa League group stages.

Front-runners Palace were reportedly interested in buying Moses outright for £12 million this month. However, their current priority is to bring forth a new striker, with Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi reportedly being looked at as one of their options.

This is where Cardiff come in. They hope they can swoop in for Moses while Palace focus on their striker pursuit, taking the former Nigerian international from Stamford Bridge on a loan deal until the end of the season.

Cardiff coach Neil Warnock is looking for a right wing-back, after his preferred target, Liverpool’s Nathaniel Clyne, joined Bournemouth instead of the Bluebirds. Moses would fit the bill as Cardiff, who have gathered 18 points in 21 Premier League matches to sit only two points above the relegation zone, try to salvage their season.
