Victor Moses’s agent has angered Wigan officials once again by admitting he’ll do everything in his power to help his client join Chelsea this summer. Desperate to leave: Victor Moses (Picture: PA) The Latics have already snubbed Chelsea’s opening offer of £4 million for Moses, but expect the Blues to return to the negotiating table next week to try and find a compromise. Moses, who is also a long-term target for Liverpool, has told Wigan chairman Dave Whelan he is desperate to quit the DW Stadium during the summer transfer window, but the Latics supremo has rubbished the talk and blames the player’s agent for stirring the situation. ‘The agents are just coining in money off the backs of these lads. It makes you wonder whether it’s all worth it,’ Whelan told the Daily Mirror. However, Moses’ representative Tony Finnigan has since hit back, suggesting that Wigan were lucky to have signed the former Crystal Palace star in the first place. ‘I know how these things work, but I’m not getting involved in a slanging match,’ Finnigan stressed. ‘All I will say is, how did Victor end up at Wigan, when he could have gone to Manchester City? Who took him to Wigan?’ The comments are said to have incensed Whelan, but Finnigan has now gone one step further, revealing this weekend that he will now do everything he can to help Moses out of Wigan. ‘Provding Wigan can agree a fee with Chelsea, I will do all I can to make the move happen for Victor,’ he added. Wigan are demanding up to £12 million for Moses, while Chelsea are said to value him at closer to £8 million, but could throw in the season-long loan of talented play-maker Josh McEachran to help smooth out a deal.
