Antonio Conte refused to be drawn on talk of a new deal for Victor Moses’ during his press conference a few minutes ago. The Nigeria international has reportedly been scouted by Barcelona.
Moses, 25, has been in sensational form since being deployed on the right side of a 3-4-3 formation and has shown incredible stamina to get up and down the park.
His good form has seen him be linked to one of the best clubs in the world, who are in need of a right-back.
But Conte hopes Moses is just focused on his own game at Chelsea.
‘It’s important to be focused on the present,’ he said.
‘I’d like to think my players are looking at the present.’
