Chelsea’s bountiful investment in new signings this summer certainly seems like an effort to plan for the long term as the Blues look set to complete the purchase of a long term target to help further boost their efforts to mount a genuine Premier League title challenge this coming season.

Victor Moses looks set to join Marko Marin, Eden & Thorgan Hazard and Brazilian Oscar as Chelsea prepare to take their summer spending to over £70m.

Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan would clearly not have liked to kept an unhappy player and Moses seemed to have his heart set on a big move back to London and Roberto Di Matteo is to secure a player with great potential who last term came to the fore in the latter months of a campaign that saw Roberto Martinez’s side pull clear of the drop zone.

Moses has made 79 appearances for Wigan, scoring nine goals in the process, since his £2.5m move to the club from Crystal Palace two and a half years ago.
