Inter Unwilling to Stump Up Asking Price for Chelsea’s Victor Moses

Inter are unwilling to pay the £10.75m required to bring Victor Moses to the club permanently, leaving the Chelsea wide man’s future uncertain.

Moses has not featured for Chelsea since September 2018, and was shipped out on loan to Fenerbahçe four months later.

His spell in Turkey was cut short, enabling him to reunite for former manager Antonio Conte at Inter in January. However, Moses has made just three Serie A appearances since his move to Italy.

The 29-year-old’s switch to Inter came with an option to buy at the end of the six month loan spell, but according to the Sun, Inter are not prepared to pay the full £10.75m to make his move permanent.

Due to the financial constraints of the coronavirus outbreak, Inter would only be willing to fork out £6m for the Nigerian international.

Moses has faced injury problems and has struggled to stay fit since moving to Italy, but Conte remains a big fan of the player and could enquire about the possibility of bringing him back on loan for the entirety of next season.

This would take Moses to the end of his Chelsea contract – which runs until 2021 – thus not allowing the club to cash in on their player.

The former Crystal Palace man enjoyed the greatest success of his Chelsea career during Conte’s tenure.

Moses was an integral part of the Italian’s 2016/17 Premier League winning side, coming into his own at wingback in Conte’s favoured 3-4-3 formation.

He featured 40 times in all competitions for Chelsea that season, but has since fallen out of favour at Stamford Bridge, and is not in the plans of former teammate Frank Lampard.

Moses was one of three players Inter plucked from the Premier League in the January transfer window, with Ashley Young and Christian Eriksen also moving to San Siro.

The Sun reports that Inter are keen to keep hold of Young, and with his contract up in June, the former Manchester United captain has agreed fresh terms with the club on a new one year deal.
