Chelsea are reportedly set to permanently end ties with winger Victor Moses after over eight years with the club.
The 30-year-old enjoyed a decent outing under Antonio Conte in 2016/2017 season, winning the league title with the Blues but failed to replicate his fine form the next season, and enjoyed very little game time with the eventual sacking of Conte.
The Nigeria international has been on loan spells from the West Londoners since 2019 with current Blues boss, Frank Lampard clearly not interested in having him back to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea are now understood to wanting a permanent end to its ties with the winger.
According to reports by Metro, The Blues are targeting a winter farewell with Moses who currently plays for Spartak Moscow on loan from Chelsea.
His current deal with Chelsea is set to come to an end next summer, but the financial implications of holding unto him till then seems quite unpalatable for the Blues given the likelihood of Moses never returning to Stamford Bridge.
This of course affords logic for the hasty move to terminate his remaining period with the club, thereby rendering him a free agent.
Options for the talented Nigerian would be a signature for his current club Spartak Moscow on a permanent basis.
Moses has been with the Blues since 2012, after shining for Wigan Athletic in 2011/2012.
Moses has been on several loan spells from Chelsea, most notably Liverpool, Stoke and West Ham.
He made 128 appearances for the Blues across all competition, scoring 18 goals.
