Victor Moses may be off to China as Shanghai SIPG show interest in securing his services

FORMER Super Eagles winger Victor Moses could be off to China soon after Chinese Super League team Shanghai SIPG made enquires about him after Chelsea dropped him from its squad for yesterday's Europa League game against Bate Borisov.


Moses, 27, has not featured much for Chelsea this season as following the arrival of new manager Maurizo Sarri, the team has switched from the 3-5-2 formation in which he played as a wingback to a 4-3-3 structure. Now a peripheral figure in the team, Moses, who retired from international football to concentrate on his club career appears to have run into a cul-de-sac and is looking for a way to revive his career.


Already, Mr Sarri has told  Moses that he can leave the club during the January transfer window as he is not central to his plans over the forthcoming season. To drive the point home, Mr Sarri dropped Moses from Chelsea's squad for the continental tie against Bate Borisov, the Belarusian champions yesterday.


Chelsea went on to win the match 1-0 but Moses now appears to have no future at the club and is only waiting for the January transfer window to move on.  Crystal Palace and Wolverhampton Wanderers have signified their interest in his services and with Shanghai SIPG now also entering the fray, he looks set to leave Chelsea.


If Moses goes to China, he will be reunited with his former teammate Oscar who currently plays for Shanghai SIPG. However, Moses is thought to be keen on staying in England due to family reasons.
