Victor Moses’ name has popped up as one of the potential targets of Spanish giants, FC Barcelona.According to Spanish publication, Sport, Barcelona are considering the Chelsea man as one of their option ahead of next season.
The 25-year-old has emerged as a shock target for Barca after his sterling performance for Chelsea which has helped the London club to the top of the pile in the English Premier League.
Sport reports that Barcelona have watched Moses three times in his newly adopted right wing-back role at Chelsea and now believe that he is one of the men who could help them solve their defensive frailties on the right side of defence.
The report also claimed that Barca officials have been surprised with how Moses has adapted to his new wing back role with so much “depth.”
Moses has made 11 league appearances for Chelsea this season, scoring twice and weighing in with an assist.
He also has an 89 per cent tackle success rate, five blocked shots and 10 interceptions since he began playing as a wing-back.The Nigerian winger has a contract with Chelsea until 2019.
