Wigan Athletic have warned Chelsea and Liverpool that they will have to part with at least £12million if they want to sign Victor Moses.

According to the Daily Mirror, Wigan chairman Dave Whelan has insisted on a £12million price tag for his star winger, as he looks to secure the highest possible fee for the Premier League club.

Roberto Di Matteo's Chelsea reportedly had a £6million offer rejected last month, while new Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is also thought to be interested in securing the services of the talented 21-year-old.

Reports suggest Wigan boss Roberto Martinez and Whelan are using the £9.5million fee they received from Aston Villa for former-Latics winger Charles N'Zogbia as a benchmark, believing that Moses is worth more than the Frenchman.

Moses, who represented England at under-21 level before switching to Nigeria to gain full international caps, enjoyed a breakout season last year, helping Wigan to avoid the drop in typically dramatic fashion.

And Martinez, who was linked with Anfield himself earlier last month, is believed to be eager to keep hold of the young star, but is realistic about their chances should a sizeable offer come in from either Chelsea or Livepool.

In recent seasons Wigan have been forced to sell N'Zogbia and Antiono Valencia as they look to augment their Premier League survival by reinvesting the high transfer fees.

The sale of Moses would allow Martinez to rebuild his team once again, and would significantly increase his transfer kitty for the coming season.
