London:

Roberto Di Matteo has revealed Chelsea are in talks with Wigan in a bid to sign Nigeria forward Victor Moses.

Wigan chairman Dave Whelan claimed earlier this week that he had rejected a bid from Chelsea for Moses because it failed to match £10 million (12.7-million-euro, $15.6-million) valuation of the 21-year-old.

And Blues manager Di Matteo has now confirmed the European champions are keen to complete a deal for the highly-rated former Crystal Palace player, who will be out of contract at the end of this coming season.

Di Matteo, currently in the United States with Chelsea for their pre-season tour, told skysports.com: "It's something that the clubs are discussing but at the moment he is a Wigan player.

"He had a good season last season, he is young and an interesting prospect."

Di Matteo also wants to speak to French winger Florent Malouda over his future this week.

The 32-year-old is entering the final year of his contract with Chelsea and had been linked with a move to Brazilian club Santos but that deal has reportedly fallen through.

"Florent is back with us now and I will have a talk with him this week," Di Matteo said. "We cannot name more than 25 players in the squad so we will have to make some decisions.

"Pre-season gives me a great opportunity to look at the new players and see how they develop. The final decision on who will go and who will stay will be made at the beginning of August."
