European giants set to close deal for Chelsea-owned Nigerian wing-back
Inter Milan are on the verge of securing the services of Chelsea winger Victor Moses after head coach Antonio Conte made a specific request for the club to land the Nigeria international.
Moses played under Antonio when the Italian was in charge of the Blues and has already expressed his positive opinion on the transfer and wants an immediate switch to Inter.
Fenerbahce, the club at which the Nigerian is currently on loan, will not stand in the 29-year-old star’s way in moving to Italy.
According to Sky Sport Italia, the African wing-back will return to Chelsea to be immediately loaned out to Nerazzurri until June for no cost.
Inter have already made it known that they won’t make a permanent move for Victor this month, but could revisit the situation in the summer if they deem him to have successfully adapted to Antonio’s 3-5-2 formation.
A fee of €10 million (£8.5 million) has been mooted as the figure which Inter Milan will have to pay if they wish to bring in the player on a permanent basis in June.
The Italian coach knows Victor very well and impressed Conte ahead of the 2016-17 term, for which he was rewarded with a regular spot at the Blues in the wing-back role.
The pair then went on to win the FA Cup two years ago after beating Manchester United in the final at Wembley.
Moses has only made six appearances for his current side this season but should he join Inter, he’d follow Alexis Sanchez, Ashley Young, Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling in leaving the PL for Serie A.
