Josh McEachran of Chelsea could be a deal maker for the Victor Moses Move
Now this news coming out at the moment is that Chelsea are prepared to up their offer in pursuit of Victor Moses. It is believed that they will now offer a fee in the region of about £9.5 million, plus allow Wigan to take Josh McEachran for free on loan. The hope is to persuade Roberto Martinez to jump at the chance to sign the highly talented midfielder.
It looks a more reasonable offer, and it wouldn't surprise me if it was true. If we are offered that sort of money, with the chance to sign Josh on a year loan, then I would say thank you very much Mr Abramovich where is my cheque. It would be over three time what we paid for the player originally, and be more than enough to sign a replacement, along with the addition of a new midfielder.
That settles two problems where there has been one. A good chunk of money to sign a new winger/striker, plus a midfield addition to fill the void left by Mohammed Diame. All in all that seems good business to me, but then I am not a Premier League manager.
I have however resigned myself to the fact that the club will lose Victor Moses this summer, to whoever the highest bidder will be. And fair enough if the player wants to go, then by all means catch the next bus out of Wigan.
