Victor Moses claims he wants to play for the club which offers him the most money.
Wigan have rejected Chelsea’s over of just under £4million for Moses, who has 12 months left on his Latics deal, and want £10million for the Nigeria international.
Wigan chairman Dave Whelan says they are prepared to double Moses’ weekly wages to just under £40,000-a-week if he stays and the winger says he would like to go with the “highest bidder”.
“Now that I’m done with the national team, my attention should switch to the transfer window,” said Moses.
“I’ve heard a lot of offers are on the table. First of all, Wigan have the final say, but for me, the highest bidder would take the day. But right now, I’m still a DW faithful.”
Whelan felt Chelsea’s offer for one of the Premier League’s hottest young talents was an insult and says their new contract offer is a fair one.
“We’ve made him a very good offer – involving a doubling of his wages – over the next three years,” he said.
“It’s down to whether the lad himself listens to sense, or whether he listens to his agent.”
