LONDON: Roberto Di Matteo revealed Chelsea are in talks with Wigan in a bid to sign Nigeria forward Victor Moses. Wigan Chairman Dave Whelan claimed earlier this week that he had rejected a bid from Chelsea for Moses because it failed to match the £10 million valuation of the 21-year-old. Blues manager Di Matteo has now confirmed the European champions are keen to complete a deal for the highly-rated former Crystal Palace player. “It’s something that the clubs are discussing but at the moment he is a Wigan player,” said Di Matteo. “He had a good season last season, he is young and an interesting prospect.” Di Matteo also wants to speak to French winger Florent Malouda over his future this week. “Florent is back with us now and I will have a talk with him this week.”
