Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta confirmed his team’s interest in Chelsea loanee Victor Moses over the weekend, and now, according to Gianluca Di Marzio’s latest divinings, Chelsea have given approval to the Nerazzurri to begin talks over a potential deal.’

Moses, who was a key player for current Inter boss Antonio Conte at Chelsea, is currently on loan at Fenerbahce, but has been dealing with injuries for much of the season, limiting him to just seven appearances altogether. Fener are apparently okay with letting him leave, and obviously Chelsea are as well. Moses does have 18 months left on his contract with the Blues; thus the need to grant permission to Inter over any negotiations.

As in the case of Olivier Giroud, Inter do need to make room first however. So while Giroud waits for Matteo Politano to clear out, Moses will apparently have to wait for Valentino Lazaro to leave. Lazaro had just arrived last summer amid some fanfare from Hertha Berlin, but the 23-year-old has failed to live up to expectations and is now said to be joining injury-hit Newcastle United on loan (whose emergency stand-in right back scored their winning goal on Saturday against Chelsea, incidentally).

In any case, there looks to be some real substance behind the Moses-to-Inter rumors this time around, so perhaps Conte will get his man in the end this time.
