The dream of former Super Eagles striker Victor Moses joining Inter Milan on a permanent deal when football activities return to normal after the COVID-19 pandemic may not see the light of day. The winger may be dumped after his flop loan spell.
The Serie A side is said to be reluctant to pay the £10.75m valuation placed on Moses by his English side, Chelsea. Frank Lampard’s side is looking to sell Victor Moses, with Inter Milan interested in bringing in the 29-year-old winger, according to The Sun. However, the sticking point may prove to be the price.
The Nigerian has struggled to hold down a first-team place while in Italy, making just seven appearances, mostly as a substitute. Moses has also had injury problems, failing to stay fit, and not being a major part of Antonio Conte’s starting plans.
It is understood Inter have made an enquiry to Chelsea and were told he would cost around £10.75m to seal a permanent transfer. But the Italian club would only be willing to pay around £6m due to financial constraints related to the coronavirus pandemic.
However, Conte is a big fan of Moses and could ask his old club whether they can take him back on loan for the whole of next year. The ex-Liverpool ace has made just three starts and four sub appearances in a mixed campaign where he has failed to establish himself.
