Chelsea misfit Juan Cuadrado could escape from Stamford Bridge this month depending on if Juventus fail in their bid to sign Julian Draxler.
The Turin giants were believed to be close to signing the German international after agreeing terms, but a transfer fee with Schalke has yet to be settled on.
That in turn has led to suggestions that they will consider their other options, with Bayern ace Mario Gotze also on their shortlist of targets.
However, Max Allegri has also reportedly identified Cuadrado as a possible target, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, with the Colombian likely to be the easiest of the trio to sign.
Cuadrado has struggled to settle at Stamford Bridge after his move from Fiorentina last year, and he may well be open to the idea of returning to Serie A.
While Juve are reportedly €16m away from Schalke’s asking price for Draxler, that could force them to negotiate a deal with Chelsea which would see the former Viola winger join on an initial loan deal.
Whether or not Jose Mourinho is ready to quit on the Colombian international remains to be seen, but Juve are lining him up in case they are unable to sign their preferred target, which could also alert Arsenal who according to reports have been monitoring Draxler for some time.
