Victor Moses is reputedly set for a sensational return to the Super Eagles three years after hanging his international boots.
The 30-year-old Spartak Moscow player called time on his Super Eagles career following the 2018 World Cup in Russia where Nigeria fell at the group stage.
But according to his representative Drew Uyi, the former Chelsea star is open to playing for the three-time African champions once again at next year’s AFCON and 2022 World Cup play-offs after he was sounded out by Nigerian football authorities.
Uyi also revealed Moses was hit financially by the decision to end his international career in 2018.
“He will come back, but he’s not fussy about it,” Uyi told The Football Show on YouTube about Moses’ plans. “He could come for a year.
“He is a professional, he will always deliver.
“I remember I got him an endorsement around the time he quit the Super Eagles and because the deal was tied to the national team, they pulled the plug on it.”
Moses earned 37 caps for the Super Eagles, scoring 12 goals and winning the 2013 AFCON in South Africa.
If he returns, he will join striker Odion Ighalo in coming out of retirement to don Nigeria’s green and white once again.
With uncertainty surrounding the future of Eagles boss Gernot Rohr, football authorities are pulling out all the stops to enhance Nigeria’s chances of winning a fourth AFCON crown and sealing a spot at Qatar 2022.
Moses has been in fantastic form for his Russian club scoring twice and providing five assists in 21 appearances in all competitions this season.
