Tottenham have launched an £8million bid for Chelsea player Victor Moses, according to The Sun.
The Nigeria international has spent that last two seasons away from Stamford Bridge and has failed to play a competitive game for the Blues since Jose Mourinho returned in 2013.
He failed to impress at Liverpool but rekindled some of his best form for Stoke City last season. Mark Hughes attempted to bring Moses back to the Britannia Stadium, but the player decided against it.

Although Moses has been taken on Chelsea's pre-season tour, it is expected that Mourinho will eventually decide to part ways on a more permanent basis.
Before he has had a chance to prove himself at Chelsea, Tottenham are testing the resolve of their Premier League rivals with an £8m offer.

Maurico Pochettino is trying to cash in on Andros Townsend and hopes to sell the England international for £15m. Moses, 24, would become a direct replacement for him at White Hart Lane.
So far, however, Spurs have failed to drum up enough interest for Townsned, at least with his current valuation. Sunderland, Newcastle and Aston Villa are all monitoring the situation but seem unwilling to meet the high price.
Selling to rivals
Chelsea have already agreed to let one player leave for north London this summer after Petr Cech signed for their Premier League title rivals Arsenal.
Moses would certainly represent a smaller risk for Mourinho as Tottenham are not expected to challenge for the championship next season. It will, however, strengthen a side that managed to beat them 5-3 last season.
Tottenham also finished above Chelsea in the Premier League as recently as 2012. Although both teams have moved in opposite directions since then.
But Moses will arguably fail to make the kind of impact Cech will make with the Gunners. The goalkeeper is still considered to be one of the best in the business despite spending the majority of last season on the bench.
Moses, on the other hand, scored just three goals and created three more in 19 games for Stoke last season. There is even an argument as to whether he represents an upgrade of Townsend.
Is Victor Moses an upgrade on Andros Townsend for Tottenham?
