Though Tottenham Hotspur have yet to make an official bid for Victor Moses, feelers emanating from fans of the English Premier League club suggest the Nigeria international may receive a warn reception should both parties eventually go ahead with the transfer. Chelsea striker, Moses, is currently embroiled in transfer controversy as Stoke City, where he spent last season on loan from the Blues, are keen to sign him on a permanent deal, but his parent club also want to use him as a makeweight in their quest to lure goalkeeper Asmir Begovic from Stoke City.
Moses’ reluctance in making a permanent move to Stoke ostensibly because he wants to play in Europe next season, an opportunity that Tottenham offers, seems to make White Hart Lane his likely destination, but the overall response has been one of great disappointment from most fans of the London club. Egregiously passionate Tottenham fans, according to the Daily Mirror, argued that Moses wouldn’t be a top signing for the club.
Some see value in the Super Eagles winger but, after failing to break into the Chelsea team and also underwhelming at Liverpool, Moses doesn’t impress the majority of the Tottenham faithful.
Indeed, over a number of comments on several different HITC Sport pages, Spurs supporters have been debating a potential Moses signing and most have come to the same conclusion: He may be a good fit at Stoke City but that doesn’t really concern a side with Champions League ambitions. According to fan identified simply as Dommo: “Signing Moses wouldn’t strengthen our squad, we need a proven winger that will score 15 goals a season and provide assists to (striker Harry) Kane.” “This would certainly be an awful signing,” wrote Daniel J. Permutt.
“Over the last couple of seasons, the quality of incoming player transfers at Spurs has gotten progressively worse, and this deal would be the least ambitious of the lot. “Luckily, it’s the summer – a time when we’re linked to everyone with even the slightest hint of a pulse – so we shouldn’t take the link too seriously for now.” G-$spur wrote: “Well I don’t think Moses is that bad of a player. Don’t get me wrong, it is less ambitious to go for him as we are chasing Champions League (given up on us qualifying for that anyway)…and the statement of intent should be signing players that give fans the sense of ambition. “Yet…I still believe Moses is a good player.
He is incredibly strong (when he chooses not to dive); he’s quick, direct, skillful and causes full backs problems. Unfortunately for Moses, he’s signed for Chelsea and had Mourinho as his gaffer…and Mourinho is not interested in him. Then, Moses has been signed by teams like Liverpool for loan spells and not been used.” “Not sure about him, is he a top 4 player? I think we need top 4 players,” klarky wrote. “He was a good player a few seasons back, but he has disappeared of late and if he was good enough he wouldn’t have gone off the radar.”
