Chelsea are confident that they will be able to complete a deal to sign Wigan forward Victor Moses as they prepare to make a second offer over the weekend.
The Blues made an initial offer of £4million which was instantly turned down by Wigan chairman Dave Whelan, but they hope that the second offer will be enough to persuade the club to part with the youngster.
Moses particularly impressed towards the back end of the season as his good form helped Wigan steer clear of the relegation zone.
The 21-year-old is also believed to be on the radar of Liverpool but it seems as though Chelsea will try to complete a deal in the coming days as they strengthen their squad with yet another signing.
Chelsea have already brought Eden Hazard and Marko Marin to the club and are clearly keen to bolster the options in midfield.
Wigan are keen to demand a decent fee up-front as there is a clause in Moses' contract that allows Crystal Palace to get 20 per cent of any fee they receive.
