West Ham United are in negotiations with Chelsea for Victor Moses and hoping that Pedro’s outstanding debut will accelerate a potential £7 million deal. Slaven Bilic is hoping to add at least two players before the transfer window shuts next week following consecutive home defeats against Leicester City and Bournemouth, with wide players a particular priority.
There remains some gap in the respective valuations of the two clubs, with Chelsea wanting around £10 million for Moses even though he again appears peripheral to Jose Mourinho’s first-team plans.
Moses has spent the past two seasons on loan, at Liverpool and then Stoke City. Mark Hughes was also interested in bringing him to Stoke permanently and he is among Tottenham’s targets although not regarded as a priority.
Moses moved to Chelsea in 2012 after an impressive spell at Wigan Atheltic where he helped the club avoid relegation. Prior to that he spent three years at Crystal Palace.
