Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado has reportedly closing in on a Juventus switch, according to reports in Italy.

The 28-year old who have moved to Stamford Bridge in January 2015 for a £23.3m from Florentina. He had a below par second half with the Blues that season and was sent on loan to Juventus last season. He has been good with the Serie A giants in a league where he had excelled in the past.

The Colombian international has made 40 appearances for Juventus last season as he scored five goals and provided eight assists. However, last week Italian media outlet Tuttosport had reported that the deal between the winger and Juventus have stalled.

Cuadrado was expected to move to Juventus this summer as the Italian giants are keen to sign him on a permanent deal. However, new manager Antonio Conte have not made a decision on the player’s future.

Italian media outlet Gazelle Dello Sport suggest that the deal is close to completion after lengthy talks between the two clubs. Juventus are apparently poised to stump up £1.7m to confirm another temporary switch.

However, it remains whether there will be an option for Juventus to buy Cuadrado at the end of the loan spell as the Italian giants are reportedly interested in a permanent deal based on his performance this season at Turin.
