Wigan Athletic are back on the trail of Crystal Palace duo Victor Mosses and Nathaniel Clyne and it is believed that a bid for the pair is about to be submitted to cash starved Palace.
Latics scouts watched Crystal Palace win at Reading on Tuesday when both Moses and Clyne played and incidentally both received yellow cards, Moses scored what was described as a wonder goal right on half-time when he curled the ball into the top corner from fully 25 yards.
It`s no secret that Latics boss Roberto Martinez is a firm fan of Palace`s young striker Moses and he came very close to joining the Latics in August he even had a medical up at Christopher Park, but although a fee had been agreed between the Latics and Palace the method of payment couldn`t so the deal got scuppered.
Now the Latics are set to go back with a £3 million down payment plus add-ons for the highly rated England Youth international and this time Martinez is adamant to get his man.
The interest in Palace right back Nathaniel Clyne is being re-kindled after he was first targeted by former boss Steve Bruce last January, indeed Bruce rates the 18 year old very highly and attempted to sign him for Sunderland in the summer only to have a bid rejected, Palace at that time were looking for a deal in the region of £5 million.
Latics are apparently going back in with an offer for Clyne similar to the Moses one with a healthy down payment plus add-ons.
It is well documented that Palace are having financial difficulties at the moment and the players missed getting their November pay cheques on time, it is expected that they will have been paid by today so avoiding the possibility of the players being allowed to leave the club for free.
The Latics have dealt with Palace many times in the past, last January Ben Watson was signed from the South London club and Fitz Hall and Emerson Boyce came as a double swoop in 2006.
