Chelsea don’t need to sign a wing-back in the summer transfer window thanks to the form of Victor Moses, according to Garth Crooks.

The Nigeria international didn’t make an impression under Antonio Conte’s predecessor Jose Mourinho after being sent out on loan at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United.

Moses initially was out-of-favour under Conte before the versatile African player became a key cog in the Italian’s team following their switch to 3-4-3 formation.

Indeed, the 26-year-old has scored three goals and has made five assists in 31 appearances in the Premeir League this season.

Former Tottenham forward Crooks believes Moses has established himself as Chelsea’s long-term wing-back on the right side of Conte’s midfield.

“Moses has become such a firm fixture in Chelsea’s title challenge that it’s hard to see how manager Antonio Conte can improve in that area,” Crooks told BBC Sport.

“If the victory over Everton is any indication then the Chelsea celebrations after the game suggested the title has been won. Or at least they have got over what they considered to be the most difficult part of their run-in.”
