Breaking: Juventus closing in on Chelsea winger

According to reports in Italy, Juventus are set to make an offer for talented Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado in the next few hours.

The 28-year old who have moved to Stamford Bridge in January 2015 had a below par second half with the Blues 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.

However, there is a lot of skepticism over his ability to hit his form in Premier League which meant he could yet again leave this summer.

Juventus who have taken the player on loan last season are keen to  submit an offer of €3-4 million for another season-long loan, according to Italian outlet Di Marzio.

A formal meeting is expected between the two clubs on Wednesday as an official bid is expected over a long time due to his impressive performances at Turin last season.

The Colombian international has made 40 appearances for Juventus last season as he scored five goals and provided eight assists. Cuadrado is reportedly keen to move back to Serie A on a permanent deal as he is highly unsettled at Stamford Bridge despite the arrival of Antonio Conte.

He was left out of the squad in their season opener against West Ham and Chelsea have an abundant of resources for the right winger role with the likes of Willian, Cuadrado, Pedro, and Victor Moses all capable of playing in that position.

Cuadrado was earlier linked with a loan move to AC Milan but Juventus are now clearly looking favorites to rope him in for yet another season-long loan.
