Palace confident of landing Moses

Crystal Palace are reportedly confident of convincing Victor Moses to rejoin the club.

Moses is the first casualty of Maurizio Sarri's overhaul of the squad at Stamford Bridge after failing to impress the Blues boss.

So where would Moses fit in at Molineux?

He became a regular part of Conte's starting side operating as right wing-back, helping the club to Premier League success.

Jonny Castro can always come across and cover in that role and Wolves should have other priorities than a high-profile backup choice at right wing-back in the forthcoming window.

He left to join Wigan eight years ago before making the move to Stamford Bridge for £9m in 2012.

Moses has received loan chances on three occasions during his Chelsea career, heading to Liverpool, Stoke, and West Ham respectively.

It's unclear how big of a transfer fee Chelsea would ask for the 28-year-old retired Nigerian global, who has two and half years still left on his contract, but given the circumstances, we're unlikely to play hardball over a player so obviously not needed (certainly at the moment).

The claim is that the interest is reciprocated, and Palace expect to finalise the deal for the 28-year-old in January despite Wolves and West Ham also monitoring his situation.

Now on a season-long loan, Chelsea have a recall option for the 21-year-old, and could use that to capitalise on rumoured Palace and Newcastle interest in his signing.
