Juventus are keen on signing out-of-favour Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado this summer.
According to Fichajes.net, the Colombia international may have emerged as a priority signing for Juve manager Massimiliano Allegri – who is keen to offer the player an exit from his Premier League misery and a return to Italy’s top flight.
However, a major stumbling block for the Serie A giants is that the Blues will only offload the winger if they can recoup the £23.3m paid for his signature only seven months ago.
On deadline day of last season’s the winter window, Cuadrado put pen-to-paper on a four-and-a-half year deal [via BBC Sport], and the English champions will no doubt not want to cut a loss on the 27-year-old so soon after his arrival.
The former Fiorentina star made just four Premier League starts in his first six-months at Stamford Bridge – being handed a dismal 312 minutes of action by Jose Mourinho.
What’s more, with the Blues allegedly continuing to pursue Barcelona’s Pedro, the Colombian could fall even further down the pecking order in west London.
Fichajes state that Allegri is keen on luring Cuadrado to Turin as a potential replacement to Arturo Vidal who, on Thursday morning, was announced to have reached an agreement with Bayern Munich [via Twitter].
