Crystal Palace are confident they will win the race to sign Victor Moses — eight years after he left the club.
Chelsea are ready to sell Moses when the January window opens, with the Nigerian not part of Maurizio’s Sarri’s plans.
Moses, who progressed through Palace’s academy before joining Wigan in 2010, has made just five appearances for Chelsea this term.
Wolves and West Ham are also monitoring the situation but Palace believe Moses favours a switch back to Selhurst Park.
Chelsea are also believed to be considering cashing in on Tammy Abraham’s good form on loan at Aston Villa by selling him next month.
Newcastle are ready to make another approach for the England international after they tried to acquire him on loan in 2017 only to be beaten by Swansea.
While he joined Aston Villa on a season-long deal, Chelsea have a recall option in place.
Chelsea are looking to buy a striker next month, with Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson one of their targets.
Abraham would raise a significant sum to put towards Chelsea’s transfer budget.
Palace are also in the running for Abraham, although they are also interested in taking Dominic Solanke on loan from Liverpool.
