Chelsea are reportedly ready to hand Victor Moses a new deal at Stamford Bridge to reward his impressive form after he was linked with a move to Barcelona.

The Nigeria international has been one the star players for the Blues since boss Antonio Conte reverted to a 3-4-3 formation, being utilised in a wing-back role following four years in the wilderness.

According to Sky Sports News, Chelsea are preparing contract talks next week to push through a new deal for the 25-year-old, who had spent time on loan at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United in successive seasons prior to his breakthrough under Conte.

Moses, who revealed that he currently ‘feels at home’ following his matchwinner against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, is reportedly a target for Barcelona and could be tempted into making a switch to Camp Nou should a formal offer be made.

It is claimed that, with three years still left to run on his current deal, Moses will take time to deliberate over the fresh terms in West London after being watched up close by Barca scouts in Chelsea’s last few home games.

The Blues are currently top of the Premier League table after winning each of their last seven games, conceding just one goal – a Christian Eriksen drive – in the process.
