Chelsea are set to renew their interest in Nigerian international Victor Moses and make an improved bid after being knocked back with their previous bid.


A report in the Evening Standard claims the Stamford Bridge club are still intent on signing the Wigan Athletic winger, despite reports from earlier this week saying they would look elsewhere.


Blues manager Roberto di Matteo will now sanction a new £6million offer after Wigan chairman Dave Whelan dismissed their previous £4million bid.


The 21-year-old has just a year left on his contract and has indicated to Wigan that he does not want to sign an extension, which brought an angry response from Whelan.


"We took this lad as a teenager, and everything he has he owes to [manager] Roberto Martinez and Wigan Athletic,” he said.


“If he gets the move to Chelsea, will he get to play in the first team every week? That's what he needs at present – experience and guidance.”


Moses moved to Wigan in 2010 for a fee thought to be in the region of £2.5million from Championship side Crystal Palace, where he had come through the youth ranks.


After initially choosing to represent England, Moses then switched his international allegiance to Nigeria, the country of his birth and made his debut earlier this year.
