The Nigeria international became the Reds' eighth summer signing when a season-long switch was agreed with the Londoners earlier this month.
Rodgers worked with the 22-year-old as a youngster when Moses trained at Stamford Bridge, and he has since made almost a century of appearances in the Barclays Premier League.
The new No.12 was a Europa League winner in 2012-13 too, but the Reds boss believes the versatile attacker has the potential to improve even further at Anfield.
"I know what I'm getting with Victor," the Northern Irishman told the Liverpool Echo.
"He is an intelligent footballer. He has good pace, he's strong and he has got good experience.
"He has already played 100 Premier League games and we were fortunate that he became available.
"I like his character. He's coming in here to prove himself and he is coming into a coaching environment.
"We always bring players in we feel have more development in them. At 22, there is still a lot of potential in Victor.
"The environment we create is such that if players have that willingness, commitment and hunger to develop then they will improve - there is no question about that. We have to maximise what we can get out of players."
