Victor Moses joins Inter Milan on loan deal. Reuniting with Antonio Conte

After completing a loan spell with Fenerbahçe, Victor Moses is joining Inter Milan on loan with an option to buy, reuniting him with former Chelsea coach Antonio Conte.

Moses, who was primarily used as a winger earlier in his career, was converted to a wing-back during Conte’s stint at Chelsea. This conversion ended up benefiting the Nigerian-international as his play played a pivotal role in The Blues securing the Premier League title in 2017.

The duo also won the FA Cup in 2018. However, after Conte was fired and replaced by fellow Italian Maurizio Sarri, Moses fell down the pecking order and was loaned out for 18 months to Fenerbahçe.

After making 14 appearances for the Turkish club in his first season, Moses has only been featured six times this season. He has also been sidelined with several muscle injuries, causing him not to be featured since November. 

Other than playing for Chelsea and Fenerbahçe, Moses has suited up for Crystal Palace, Wigan Athletic, Liverpool, Stoke City, and West Ham United. In 298 appearances at the senior level, the 29-year-old has scored 36 goals. 

The Nigerian was also a key member of the Super Eagles, including being a member of the 2018 World Cup squad. Moses had scored a pivotal penalty in the final Group D match up against Argentina to tie the game but fell 2-1 and were knocked out of the competition. Shortly thereafter, he had retired from his international duty.

As Moses gets ready to suit up for Inter, fans are hoping the chemistry between him and Conte will help them secure their first Serie A title since 2010 as they stand four points behind fellow Italian powerhouse Juventus for the top spot in the league.
