Victor Moses is officially an Inter player. The 29-year-old Nigerian has joined the Nerazzurri on loan with an option to buy.
According to the announcement, Moses will join the Nerazzurri on a 6 month contract that will keep him tied to the club until the end of June 2020.No transfer fee has been revealed but according to several sources in Italy, Inter will loan the player until the end of June 2021 and then have an option to make the transfer permanent for €10 million.
He moved to Wigan in 2010, where he debuted in the Premier League, before making a big step forward in 2012 when he was signed by then European champions Chelsea. During his first season at The Blues, he scored ten goals in 43 matches, winning the UEFA Europa League in the process.
But this wasn’t enough to convince Chelsea’s new boss. So, with his usual determination, Victor rolled up his sleeves and went again. Loan spells at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham followed.
When Antonio Conte became Chelsea’s Coach in 2016, a new chapter began in Victor Moses’s career. He became an important part of the current Nerazzurri Coach’s side, contributing to the Blues’ 2016/17 Premier League triumph and FA Cup success in 2018.
Over two seasons, he played 78 times, scored eight goals and provided eight assists. Conte used him out wide in midfield, whereas in the two years prior to this he’d often been used as an out-and-out winger or a second striker. More recently, Moses has spent time at Fenerbahce in Turkey.
On an international level, Moses played for all of England’s youth teams, also finishing as the top scorer at the U17 European Championship. In 2012, however, he made the decision to play for Nigeria, the country where he was born.
He’s since scored twelve goals in 38 matches for the Super Eagles and taken part in two World Cups. Most notably, he won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, at which he left his mark with an assist for the winning goal in the final.
