West Ham are closing in on a deal for Chelsea’s Victor Moses, according to growing rumours on Twitter.
The Hammers recently pulled out of a deal to sign Joey Barton after a fan backlash and also missed out on the loan signing of Atletico Madrid’s Raul Jimenez after the Mexican opted to sign for Benfica instead.
But varying reports on Twitter this afternoon claim that Moses could be heading to the Boleyn Ground before the transfer window closes – thought it’s worth pointing out that these are just rumours and are in now way being reported as fact just yet.
The Nigerian spent last season on loan at Stoke City and impressed hugely before an injury picked up against West Ham in April ruled him out for the rest of the campaign.
The 24-year-old, who featured in Chelsea’s Community Shield defeat to Arsenal before being left out of the Blues’ opening day of the season meeting with Swansea, looks to be out of favour at Stamford Bridge.
Hammers boss Slaven Bilic did hint that the club are close to signing a player – a striker – at last night’s Fans Forum at the Boleyn Ground. Although Moses isn’t a striker, he is predominantly an attack minded winger who could, if needed, be utilised in a striker’s role.

It is not yet clear what the terms of the deal are, or even if these rumours have any substance to them, but Hammers fans appear to be split in opinion regarding Moses’ potential arrival.
