The controversy over the bid for Nigerian striker, Victor Moses, has refused to die down, as Wigan have warned Chelsea and Tottenham that it will cost at least £12 million to take him from the DW Stadium.
Moses, 21, was the subject of a £4m bid from Chelsea earlier this month, which was turned down.
New Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is also ready to launch a bid for the exciting young forward. Latics boss Roberto Martinez wants to keep hold of his man but Moses’ contract runs out next year and the player has expressed his desire to leave this summer.
With former club Crystal Palace due 20 per cent of any transfer fee, Wigan chairman Dave Whelan is playing hardball with Chelsea and Liverpool, according to The Mirror.
Whelan is arguing that Moses’ potential and youth make him a more valuable asset than Charles N’Zogbia, who Wigan sold to Aston Villa last summer for £9.5m.
The Nigerian international netted six times for Wigan last season and is comfortable playing on either flank as well as off the main striker.
