Chelsea completing the signing of £18million Andre Schürrle could see them lose one of their most exciting young stars.
The Stamford Bridge club confirmed a deal for Germany international Schürrle on Thursday, but the signing was swiftly followed by a report in the Daily Mail claiming Victor Moses was interesting Everton.
Reports last week suggested the return of Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea would make it harder for Moses to get playing time, so Schürrle’s arrival is unlikely to help in that regard.
New Everton manager Roberto Martinez was one of the managers that oversaw Moses develop into one of the Premier League’s most dangerous attackers when he was at Wigan Atheltic.
Moses eventually moved to Chelsea for a fee in the region of £9million and became a regular under interim manager Rafael Benitez last season.
Martinez will be looking to rebuild the squad left to him after David Moyes left Goodison Park to take over at Manchester United following Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.
The Spaniard’s chances of convincing Moses to swap Chelsea for Everton could well be helped by the fact he managed him a couple of seasons ago and the progress the Nigeria international made under Martinez.
