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.

With the deadline day looming, Cuadrado is keen to leave Stamford Bridge as he has not future at the club. The talented winger has not featured in any of the four games that Chelsea have played so far in the season.

Juventus are keen to make one final bid before the Wednesday’s transfer deadline as they look to swoop in the player who have impressed a lot last season.
