Blues interested in exciting Colombian Juan Cuadrado.
Chelsea are set to move for Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado, who lit up the 2014 FIFA World Cup with his displays for Colombia, as a replacement for out-of-favour £18 million star Andre Schurrle, who could be moving on according to reports from the Express.
Cuadrado has continued his fine form for La Viola this season, but the Florence club’s inability to keep pace with Juventus and AS Roma at the top of the Serie A table could motivate him to seek a new challenge, potentially in the Premier League.
Despite playing a crucial role as a substitute in Germany’s impressive summer World Cup triumph, Schurrle has made just five Premier League starts for Chelsea this season, although the former Bayer Leverkusen man has committed his future to the Stamford Bridge outfit despite reports to the contrary:
“In a phase with less playing time, transfer rumours are always coming up.”
“Of course I want to be on the pitch as much as possible and score goals for my club.”
“In a team like Chelsea with many top players you have to prove yourself again and again.”
