Reds hope to bring winger to Anfield for this campaign.
Liverpool’s hopes of signing Chelsea wide man Victor Moses on a season-long loan deal this summer have increased after the Nigerian was left out of the west London club’s squad for their meeting with Bayern Munich in the Uefa Super Cup in Prague on Friday night, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
The 22-year-old has only been at Stamford Bridge for a year now, after originally joining the Blues from Wigan Athletic last August for a fee of £9 million.
However, despite scoring an impressive ten goals for the club in his 43 appearances in total in all competitions in his debut campaign in the capital, including one solitary strike in his 23 Premier League outings for his new team, Moses has now been told by new Chelsea head coach Jose Mourinho that he can leave the Bridge this season.
And Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is hoping that he can use his close working relationship with Mourinho to be able to persuade the Portuguese to allow the Nigeria international to move to Anfield on loan for this season, although Chelsea are understood to not be willing to allow the player to leave on a permanent deal.
One stumbling block, however, to Moses joining the Reds is Chelsea’s demand for a one-off £2m loan fee for the winger, but if a compromise figure can be reached, then it is thought that the move will still take place before the transfer window closes on Sept 2.
