Victor Moses may be in big trouble.

It has been reported that Chelsea have agreed a fee with Real Madrid to sign right-back Danilo. The Blues look set to part with £26M in order to get the deal over the line, which surely raises question marks over Moses’ long-term future at the club.

Moses was a revelation last campaign in the right-wing-back role, but it remains to be seen whether Antonio Conte sees him as a long-term option in that position.

After being a cornerstone in Conte’s back-line last time around, it seems unlikely that the Nigerian would be willing to sit on the bench. Danilo’s impending arrival, however, may well signal trouble ahead for Moses.

Danilo’s meteoric rise convinced Real Madrid to draft him in, but he has been unable to replicate the performances he put in at Porto, in a Los Blancos shirt. However, when you compare his 2016/17 stats to Moses’ he still comes out on top.

Victor Moses vs Danilo
Assists: 2-2
Pass completion: 79%-86%
Chances created (per 90): 0.71-0.94
Key passes (per 90): 0.76-1.06
Tackles won (per 90): 1.18-2.12
Interceptions (per 90): 1.16-2.18
Blocks (per 90): 0.21-0.41
Clearances (per 90): 1.88-2.47

If Conte is willing to part with as much as £26M to secure Danilo’s services, he must be confident that he can get him back to his very best. If he is successful, Moses will find it difficult to displace him in the side.

Moses is mul I talented, what he offers the team Danilo won’t, playing in Spain and Porto isn’t the same as playing in England, Danilo is a good buy but not as Moses replacement, they play alternately because we have a lot of games this season
