Newcastle United weighing up move for Premier League talisman

Published

on

Whether Wigan Athletic see the drop at the end of this season or not, Newcastle United are expecting to take advantage of the lowly league position that the Latics are bound to finish in and make a move for wantaway winger, Victor Moses.

The 21 year-old has stated that he is open to a move away from the DW Stadium and that should the club get relegated, he would be heading for the exit.

The Magpies have enjoyed a magnificent breakout season in the English top flight and are now competing for European football despite being in the Championship barely two years ago themselves.

That feat is in no small part down to their wing play and although Yohan Cabaye and Danny Guthrie have given ammunition to Demba Ba also, it appears as if playing out wide is where their true power is now developing.

Players like Sylvain Marveaux, Jonas Gutierrez and most recently Hatem Ben Arfa have been very successful on the wings and it appears that Alan Pardew is keen to strengthen that area of his squad with a cut-price move for Moses.

One midfielder who hasn’t been as successful is Gabriel Obertan, who has failed to tie down a regular spot in the first team since arriving from Manchester United in the summer.

The Frenchman is already being linked with a move away from Tyneside and should such a transfer come to fruition, it would free up space in the squad for the arrival of Moses.

The former Crystal Palace youngster has made 28 starts for Wigan this season, scoring three goals and recording six assists.

Numerous other Premier League outfits are also in the hunt to sign Moses however, and will undoubtedly pose stern competition to Newcastle’s bid.

With just over a year left on his contract, Roberto Martinez won’t be keen to let go of his talisman but may not have a choice if the club decides to cash in on his signature in a deal that would cost Newcastle around £3m; a price that could change if Moses’ current side are set to play in the Championship next campaign.
