John Obi Mikel is backing Chelsea's pursuit of Wigan Athletic attacker Victor Moses. Mikel would relish linking up with Nigeria team-mate Moses, who is at the centre of one of the transfer sagas of the summer.

Mikel said of the Wigan forward and Chelsea target: "He's young and the club are going the right way now buying more young players, trying to develop them for the future.

"If Moses comes, he's going to be one of those, too."
