Arsenal are the latest club to be reportedly interested in Wigan Athletic striker Victor Moses, challenging both Chelsea and Liverpool for the signature of the Nigeria international
Latics owner Dave Whelan and manager Roberto Martinez have both stated that there is no need to sell any player, let alone prize their 21 year old asset, Martinez stated last week said he wasn`t going to get involved with the media speculation surrounding Moses and said –‘We’re not going to be drawn into the media speculation’
‘All I will say is that Victor had a tremendous season last year – particularly after Christmas – and he is still only 21.
‘I’m really looking forward to Victor having a very good break and coming back refreshed and ready to go.
‘His experience with Nigeria will bring him on even more, and will hopefully take him on to a different level next season.
‘As I always say, the speculation is only a good thing – because when you perform well you are going to get attraction from elsewhere.’
Arsenal are struggling to tie down England striker Theo Wallcott who is reputedly looking for a mega bucks contract and this has led to the speculation linking the Gunners to Moses
The Latics are looking for £10 million plus if they do indeed sell, so far the only confirmed bid has been a paltry £3 million from Chelsea
