According to reports, Chelsea coach, Maurizio Sarri has washed his hands off any link the team’s Nigerian winger, Victor Moses has in the January transfer window, as the Italian manager says player movements are not his duty.
Moses has been linked with a possible move out of Stamford Bridge to Fulham, Cardiff City as well his old club Crystal Palace this month, but Sarri is feigning ignorance of any development.
Amidst reports that Fulham are stepping up their campaign to convince Moses and Danny Drinkwater to join Gary Cahill in a switch across west London, Sarri says only those who are responsible can talk about it.
Moses has reportedly been shown around Fulham’s facilities at Craven Cottage, ahead of a proposed move, and Chelsea are willing to allow the star leave on a permanent or temporary basis as he is not in Sarri’s plans.
However, Sarri is not willing to throw comprehensive light onthe former Super Eagles star, who has dropped down The Blues’ pecking order.
At the start of the season, Moses was behind only Willian, Eden Hazard and Pedro in the pecking order of wingers, but is now their fifth rated, as Callum Hudson-Odoi has also overtaken him.
Moses has not seen action as he did in two seasons under Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge, logging only 176 minutes in the six matches he was mostly used as a substitute.
Given his lack of playing time, Moses is tipped to depart in the ongoing window, such that Palace, Fulham, Cardiff City and Wolverhampton Wanderers are all said to be keen on having him this month.
However, Sarri prefers not to talk about Moses’ likely transfer, saying: ”I don’t, know because I am not in charge of the market. You have to call the club and ask the man in charge. I don’t know.”
