West Ham United have been linked with an interest in former loan star Victor Moses from Chelsea as they look to solve a bit of a crisis in the right-back area, according to ‘ExWHUExployee’ a regular on the West Ham Way Podcast.

The Nigeria international was a temporary player for the Hammers under Slaven Bilic back in their Upton Park days, and the club could be looking for him to help them out once again.

Manuel Pellegrini has got an issue or two at right-back with the news that Ryan Fredericks is out for the remainder of 2018 with an injury, and while he has Pablo Zabaleta who can fill in for him in that area, he would be grossly short of cover should anything happen to the former Argentina defender.

Moses played 26 times for the Hammers in the 2015-16 season and found the net on a couple of occasions. That spell earned him a regular spot in the Chelsea side under Antonio Conte over the last two terms, but he has struggled much more for game time in this campaign.

He has played just six times under Maurizio Sarri, and was not involved in their Europa League clash against PAOK Salonika on Thursday evening.

With the Africa Cup of Nations taking place at the end of the campaign, Moses may well look to leave Stamford Bridge in January to get some game time in ahead of potentially competing in that tournament in Cameroon.

That will suit the Hammers perfectly, because not only can he answer their issues in the full-back area, but he has enough about him going forward to provide cover for some of the West Ham attacking players too.

You get the feeling that there will be a fair bit of movement at the London Stadium in January, and plenty of players will be rumoured to be joining. Moses could be one deal that actually materialises, if the former West Ham employee is to be believed.
