QPR step up bid for Nigeria's Victor Moses

QPR Manager, Mark Hughes, seems to have a growing confidence in the players of Nigerian origin as report in the English media suggest the former Man city manger is keen on signing on another Nigerian, Victor Moses.

Latest reports reveals that QPR defender Matt Connolly could be used as a makeweight in the deal to bring Victor Moses to Loftus Road from Wigan.

The West-London side are in the process of tabling a bid of around £6m for the young Nigerian but Wigan are allegedly holding out for a figure nearer £10m on a player they believe could go right to the top of world football.

QPR Chairman, Tony Fernandes, isn’t keen on forking out the £10m transfer fees, so manager Mark Hughes has thrown in the former Arsenal reserve captain, Connolly, along with the current £6m bid.

This many feel would be an attractive proposition for Latics manager, Roberto Martinez, who was planning a move for the out-of-favour QPR defender anyway.

Connolly is available for a transfer at QPR following the signings of Taye Taiwo and Nedum Onouha, and the potential move for Chris Samba from Blackburn.

Worthy addition
Hughes still has to strengthen his attacking options though and this has triggered the move for the Wigan winger.

Moses is a player that Hughes has had his eye on for a while and allegedly nearly purchased him when manager of Fulham.

Moses has featured for England’s under-21 team before switching allegiance to play for Nigeria.

He joined Wigan from Crystal Palace for around £2.5m, and he has gone onto become one of the hottest young prospects in the Premier League with some dazzling performances which have caught the attention of many scouts from around the world.
