Moses who has made a total of 78 appearances in the last two seasons under Antonio Conte is considering his future and might not be willing to see out the season if his place in the team does not change by the winter transfer window.

The report states that Moses is among the players being considered to help provide good service for Romelu Lukaku who has struggled in front of goal.

Chelsea Manager Maurizio Sarri recently stated that Moses is not suited to his style of play.

Speaking to reporters he said, “Moses is more suitable for playing wing back than like a winger or a full back, I think. I don’t know [if they have a future]. They have to improve but their characteristics are a little bit different.”

Other players mentioned in the report include Eintracht Frankfurt‘s Croatia star Ante Rebic and AS Roma’s Cengiz ünder.

He is expected to be given more minutes on the pitch when Chelsea travel to face BATE Borisov of Belarus in their next Europa League fixture scheduled for Thursday, November 8.
