Barça need a right-back.

After months of being on the ledge regarding the club's need to find a right-back, it looks like the board and coach are finally in agreement.

Despite Sergi Roberto's scintillating rise into Luis Enrique's starting XI, the Spanish international has failed to make a significant impact week-in week-out in his new role due to being the solitary option in a demanding role, forcing the coach to deviate from the standard formation and tactics in order to rest his only right-back.

After the failed signing of Aleix Vidal, it seems like the club are looking at Chelsea's Victor Moses who, much like Sergi Roberto, has clawed his way into the starting XI under Antonio Conte.

According to Sport the 25 year old Nigerian could be headed to Catalonia in a surprise move. Former Juventus coach Conte has used the powerful box-to-box player as a right-sided wingback in a five-man defense. The forgotten Chelsea man has used his engine and dribbling to good effect, having already racked up 2 goals and 1 assist in 11 appearances.

Despite being new to the role, Victor Moses has become a mainstay for the English side and has looked strong on the flanks.

However, the move seems improbable in January in light of Moses' importance to his new manager, and signing another part-timer might be something that Barça could do without.
