Recent reports have linked Everton with a move for Victor Moses as Roberto Martinez looks to be reunited with another former player.
This, coupled with Chelsea signing Andre Schurrle and Romelu Lukaku returning from his loan deal at West Brom, leaves Chelsea with more attacking options.
This will probably mean Moses is pushed further down the pecking order and not in Jose Mourinho's plans. Moses will want first-team football, particularly with it being a World Cup year, and Everton could be the ideal destination.
Moses' best football came under the guidance of Martinez and could flourish if reunited with his former boss. He plays his best football when he is part of an attacking front three, something which Martinez has favoured at former club Wigan.
This could mean next season Everton play a 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 formation, meaning that Moses could play on the left or more probably the right wing.
Moses would offer Everton something different: that spark of creativity to create something from nothing. His speed and skills means he’s a defender's nightmare.
He can score a goal, as seen in Chelsea Europa League run, but at times his final ball is missing - but this would surely improve if he played week in week out.
He is a very confident player and if he fails the first time at taking on the full-back, you can guarantee he will keep trying until he succeeds. He would bring a winning mentality to the squad after winning both the Europa League on a domestic level and the African Cup of Nations on the international stage, where it must be noted he was one of the main stars of the competition.
In terms of what Everton would offer Moses, they could give him guaranteed first-team football which, as previously stated, will be crucial in his bid to play in the World Cup.
They will offer him a place in a team where he would probably be one of the central figures and a club that will play a brand of football that suits him.
He will be free to express himself on the ball and his game should improve due to his freedom offered by the manager. If his game progresses then there is no reason why the following season he can’t return to Chelsea and fight for a first-team place or possibly make his loan move to Everton permanent.
To conclude, if Everton can pull of this piece of business it could be seen as the last piece of the puzzle in their aim to gain European football next season.
He would increase the quality and depth of the squad which is crucial to finish in a top six position next season and could even help them win a domestic cup.
Moses himself would probably be looking forward to working under Martinez again and see this as a chance to show the world that he is a player who oozes class. Therefore, on paper this transfer makes sense for both player and club and will hopefully materialise in the next few weeks.
