Is this Chelsea outcast set for a Spurs switch?

Spurs may have set their eyes on a forgotten Chelsea attacker.

Tottenham Hotspur have made no secret of their interest in upgrading the attack this window. To date, targets such as Jay Rodriguez and Anthony Martial have extended contracts with their respective clubs, leaving Spurs to consider different avenues. One of those new avenues, according to The Mirror, is forgotten Chelsea attacker Victor Moses.

The former Wigan man, who spent a successful season on loan at Stoke last year and a less successful period the year before with Liverpool, will probably never factor in Jose Mourinho's plans so it is best for both club and player to find a permanent move. Stoke clearly want him. Yet, according to the article, Tottenham's recent interest, and the club's involvement in the Europa League, is a major consideration for Moses. While not being as vital a cog in North London as he would be with the Potters, there would be more than enough games to go around.

As for Tottenham, this would represent a decent signing. Moses may not have the panache and upside most supporters want to see Spurs purchase this window, but, should he come to N17, he clearly becomes the first attacking option off the bench with the possibility of becoming a productive starter should he find himself in form while others struggle.

Before we all start gnashing teeth and considering the meaning of Lilywhite life with Victor Moses, remember this is The Mirror. I am not inclined to take them at their word and this feels like the type of story an agent could be using to gain leverage in negotiations with Stoke. Do not be surprised to see him end up at the Britannia this summer; but with that being said, I do not hate this rumor, and would gladly welcome him to the club.
