Chelsea are ready to make a shock £10million swoop for Wigan star Victor Moses.

Chelsea worship Moses: Blues out to beat QPR to £10m Wigan ace

The talented former Crystal Palace winger – currently on international duty with Nigeria – was a major reason why Roberto Martinez’s side beat the drop last season.

But he refuses to sign a new deal at the DW Stadium and Chelsea are ready to step in for Moses, ahead of west London rivals QPR.

Moses is a favourite of ­Chelsea’s top talent spotter, Michael Emenalo – a fellow Nigerian and the main man behind the new recruits for the Double winners.

Latics boss Martinez does not want to lose his talisman, but chairman Dave Whelan has admitted that a big offer will be hard to resist.

The signing of Moses would probably mean the end for Daniel Sturridge, who has fallen out of favour under Roberto Di Matteo.
