Martinez wants to continue working with Moses.
New Everton manager Roberto Martinez has identified Victor Moses of Chelsea as an £8m signing this summer having managed the forward at Wigan Athletic, reports the Daily Mail.
The 22-year-old played under Martinez for two-and-a-half years at the DW Stadium after joining from boyhood club Crystal Palace for £2.6m.
Moses was then snapped up by the Blues last summer in a £10.1m switch and went onto win the Europa League during his first season at the club.
However, it is unknown how the winger fits into returning boss Jose Mourinho’s plans at Stamford Bridge and the Nigeria international could find first team football hard to come by with Eden Hazard, Oscar and new signing Andre Schuerrle all playing in the same position.
Therefore Martinez wants to give Moses a get-out to Goodison Park and it’s believed that £8m would be enough to tempt Mourinho into selling the talented youngster.
Since arriving in west London less than 12 months ago, the forward has played 43 matches for Chelsea and scored 10 goals and provided five assists.
Moses netted four important strikes during the club’s march to European glory and after opting to play internationally for Nigeria, also won the Africa Cup of Nations last year.
Despite playing for England at under-16 to under-21 level, the Nigerian-born player chose the country of his birth at senior standard and to date has earned 12 caps and scored four goals.
If the Toffees did land their man then it would be the Merseyside club’s second addition under Martinez, with Arouna Kone arriving from Wigan on a three-year deal on Monday.
