Liverpool ready to splash £7m on Moses



Liverpool are keen on securing a permanent deal for Chelsea winger Victor Moses, reports The Metro.

The Reds took the 22-year-old on loan from the Blues in the past transfer window and, despite the Nigerian star in-and-out of the team at Anfield, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is ready to keep him for the long term.

It’s thought the Merseyside outfit will have to pay their Premier League rivals £7m for his long term services.

Moses however, will be looking for more opportunities at the Anfield outfit before he decides to leave Chelsea for good.

The winger struggled for opportunities at Stamford Bridge and with Jose Mourinho in charge at Chelsea, it’s unlikely he will get many opportunities in the future.

And with Liverpool ready to keep him at the club, Moses may now see his long term future on Merseyside, if he is given more opportunities to shine.

Liverpool currently sit above Moses’ parent club in the table as both clubs go in search of glory this season.

Moses hope he can perform better if given more opportunities at Anfield, and he expresses his delight at playing under Rogers who has a great deal of his respect and admiration.

“He’s a great manager to play under,” Moses told reporters. “He’s very clear with the players. He knows what he wants us to do.

“There’s a winning mentality, but he also realises that if we are enjoying ourselves, we’re likely to do better. I’ve known him since I was 16 – when I was at Palace and he was at Chelsea.

“He really wanted me to go there. I said no a few times. I thought Palace was the best place for me at that time. But he never forgot about me.

“I was delighted when he came in for me again. There were a few clubs interesting in taking me, but when I heard about Liverpool, my decision was made straightaway.”
