Everton manager Roberto Martinez eyes Chelsea forward Victor Moses

New Everton manager Roberto Martinez is considering a £10million move for Chelsea forward Victor Moses.

Martinez was a key influence in developing Moses’ career at Wigan and likes his ability to play anywhere along the front line.

The Goodison chief believes his former Wigan striker – sold to Chelsea for £9million – may be up for grabs with the arrival of Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge.

With Romelu Lukaku ­heading back to Chelsea after an eye-catching loan year at West Brom, Moses could be squeezed out despite playing a role last season.

Martinez has also hinted he could go back to raid his old club Wigan, with midfielders James McCarthy, former Evertonian Callum McManaman, James McArthur, Spanish ­defender Ivan Ramis, and striker Aroune Kone all possible targets.

Top choice would be ­midfield play-maker McCarthy – valued at around £14m by Wigan chairman Dave Whelan – who has also caught the eye of Arsenal, Liverpool, Aston Villa and West Ham.
