Inter’s sporting director Piero Ausilio has confirmed that there is an agreement in principle with Chelsea to sign former Super Eagles forward Victor Moses.
Moses, 29, has already agreed to personal terms with the Serie A club.
The former Super Eagles star has long been linked with a move to Italy after Inter’s chief executive Beppe Marotta said the Nigerian was a top transfer target in this window and is now on the verge of making a permanent switch to the Serie A giants.
The move will reunite the former Wigan forward with former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte under whom Moses won the English Premier League in 2016-2017 and the FA Cup the following year.
Moses has struggled with a recurring thigh strain which has kept him out of action for a few weeks and limited him to just seven appearances all season at Turkish topflight side Fernebache where he had been on an 18-month loan since January of 2019.
The former Super Eagles star will likely reprise the right wing-back role in Conte’s favoured 3-5-2 system which he deployed to devastating effect in the two years he played under the Italian in England.
Moses retired from international football after the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
He had 38 caps and scored 12 goals for the national team and was instrumental to their triumph at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa under the late Stephen Keshi.
Inter are currently second in Serie A, four points adrift of Juventus and are aiming to win their first Serie A title since 2010.
