Agent in London for positive talks, deal with Chelsea to be finalized today

According to Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus remain interested in re-signing Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado.

The Serie A champions took the Colombia international on loan last season and are reportedly hoping to do the same for the rest of the current campaign.

And Cuadrado’s agent Alessandro Lucci is said to have flown into London to broker talks between the two clubs.

Meanwhile, Tuttosport claim Inter Milan are set to challenge their Italian rivals for the signature of misfit Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado with a £21m bid.

A potential deal with Juventus over a season-long loan for the winger has stalled, with the Nerazzurri looking to capitalise on the situation.

Further to that, Calcio Mercato Web reports that Inter will tempt Chelsea with a compulsory purchase loan-deal, immediately more attractive to the Premier League side.

New Inter boss Frank de Boer has reportedly pinpointed Cuadrado as a key transfer target due to his speed, skill and versatility down the right-flank, comfortably operating as a winger or wing-back.

Cuadrado joined Chelsea after impressing with Fiorentina, but struggled to adapt to the Premier League. As a result, he was loaned to Juventus in the summer after only five months at Stamford Bridge, making 40 appearances for the Bianconeri as they claimed the Serie A title.

Although Cuadrado is eager to leave Chelsea in favour of regular first-team football, Antonio Conte has reportedly already turned down an offer from Juve, with the Italian determined to keep the Colombian until further reinforcements come in.

When pressed on Cuadrado’s future recently, Conte responded: “For Cuadrado, we are waiting on the situation. It must become more clear about his position at the club. Now he is Chelsea’s player and today he had training with us.”
