Chelsea loaned out Victor Moses to Turkish side Fenerbahce until the end of the season, and the Nigerian has impressed while on loan with the Istanbul-based side.
Fenerbahce are interested in the Chelsea winger and wing-back, but the Blues have reportedly rejected an initial bid from the Turkish club for the permanent signing of Moses.
Chelsea are unhappy with the initial offer than that was submitted for Moses, and according to Ajansspor, Fenerbahce offered a fee of €5million which was quickly rejected by the Blues.
Fenerbahce will have to increase their bid substantially to secure the Nigerian for the long term, and Moses will definitely attract interest from many clubs during the summer.
The report also added that the Fenerbahce’s sporting director Damien Comolli is expected to go to England to meet face to face with the Chelsea executives and thrash out a deal.
Moses’ current contract at Chelsea will expire at the end of 2020/21 Premier League season.
Moses was a regular at right wing-back under Antonio Conte. However, Maurizio Sarri’s arrival, and subsequent switch from a back three to a back four, limited Moses’ game time, which led to his move away from the club.
Before Moses’ loan exit, Sarri urged him and Danny Drinkwater to improve else they won’t feature for the club, with Drinkwater yet to even make an appearance for the club.
“I don’t know; they have to improve, but the characteristics are a little bit different,” Sarri said in November when asked whether the duo have futures at Stamford Bridge.
“The situation is that Drinkwater for me is not suitable for a midfield with two midfielders. I told him two months ago what I think.
“And Moses is more suitable for playing like a wing-back than like a winger or a full-back.”
Moses has been in good form since his move to Fenerbahce. Fenerbahce who have won the Turkish title 19 times, were currently one place above the Super Lig relegation zone when Moses was signed, and now they’ve moved up to 13th place, with Moses scoring two goals in eight appearances.
