FC Barcelona Target Super Eagles Striker, Victor Moses

This is surprising! Chelsea sensation Victor Moses has emerged as a shock target for Barcelona, The Sun reports.

The Super Eagles star has undergone a barnstorming transformation under Antonio Conte and has been one of the leading men for the table toppers.

After spells on loan at Liverpool, Stoke and West Ham, the 25-year-old has finally established himself in the Blues line-up this season.

Playing at right wing-back, the ex-Crystal Palace youngster has excelled and become a firm fixture in the starting XI for the Premier League leaders.

And his performances have not gone unnoticed.

According to Spanish publication Sport, La Liga giants Barca have taken a fancy to the rejuvenated star and could turn to him to solve their problematic right-back position.

They have been exploring a number of options due Aleix Vidal’s struggle to adapt to life at the Nou Camp – forcing them to use Sergi Roberto as right-back.

Youngster Marlon was included in their squad instead of Vidal for the Champions League victory at Celtic in midweek, with the Chilean set to depart in January.

Moses has emerged as the surprise option for Barcelona.

They have been following his breakthrough at Chelsea this season intensively – sending scouts to watch him three times.

A January move looks unlikely, with Conte desperate to keep the in-form ace in his eleven as the west London outfit close in on the title.

But a switch in the summer could be on the cards. And what a turnaround that would be for Moses – a man so often forgotten around Stamford Bridge since his arrival in 2012.

His team-mate Branislav Ivanovic has also been watched by Barca, although he would be seen as a more short-term option.

Asked whether Chelsea would be offering Moses new terms to ward off potential suitors, Conte said, “It’s important to be focused game by game.

“I like to think my players are focused on the future and not so long term”

“Now we are doing very well but I like to think my players are focused on the future and not so long term.

“We have just started this league. After a bad period, we won six games in a row.

“It’s important to be focused now. To work. Not to look to the future. For everything there is a right time to speak.”

Moses has come in from the cold since being frozen out under Jose Mourinho, who loaned him out three times during his time as manager.
