Nigerian winger Victor Moses is set to leave Premier League outfit Chelsea this summer after impressing during his loan spell with Spartak Moscow in the Russian top flight. Spartak Moscow are prepared to take up the option of signing the player permanently according to reports in the media.

Moses has featured for Champions League finalists Chelsea 128 times with his best season coming during the 2016/17 campaign under Italian tactician Antonio Conte. The Nigerian was a regular in the Chelsea XI as the Blues secured the Premier League title that season. He has been sent on loan seven times during his time at Chelsea.

Spartak Moscow is his seventh loan spell away from Chelsea and it could be his last with the player on course to leave the Blues on a permanent transfer. The specific report from Goal stated that Spartak Moscow will sign Moses for £4m if the Russian Premier League giants qualify for the Champions League.

The Champions League target for Spartak Moscow was all but achieved on Monday following the 2-1 win at home to 10-manKhimki. The result against Khimki means that onlydefeat and a 10-goal swing on the final day of the season will deny Spartak Moscow a place in the Champions League next season.

Spartak Moscow and Locomotiv Moscow are in the battle for second place that would guarantee a Champions League spot. Zenit St. Petersburg are already through to the Champions League after winning the league.

Locomotiv Moscow are in third place and they trail Spartak Moscow in second place by three points in addition to having an inferior goal difference. At least one point in their away game at Akhmat Grozny on Sunday will see Spartak Moscow through to the Champions League next season irrespective of the outcome of the game between hosts Locomotiv Moscow and Ural.
