Victor Moses wants to leave Chelsea because he is frustrated by his lack of opportunity under new manager Maurizio Sarri.
Moses was a regular starter under Antonio Conte where he was played regularly as a wing-back in a 3-5-2 formation. However, Sarri has switched to a more traditional 4 – 4 -3, which means that there is no place for Moses in a flat-back four, whilst opportunities to play in his original position as a winger are few and hard to come by, prompting his desire to leave.
A former Crystal Palace youth player, Moses joined Chelsea in the summer of 2012, but initially struggled to break into the first team at Stamford Bridge, and was sent on loan to Liverpool, Stoke and West Ham before finally getting his chance under Conte when he first was appointed manager.
He has won 37 caps for Nigeria but decided to retire from international football after this summer’s World Cup.
