Juventus director Giuseppe Marotta has said that Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado is keen to complete a permanent transfer to the Serie A champions following an impressive start to his loan spell, the Metro reports.
The Colombian international was ushered out of Stamford Bridge over the summer after failing to find his feet in the Premier League, despite only joining the club in January of this year (via Metro).
However, the Metro state that he has re-discovered his best form in Italy, and a report in the Daily Mirror has claimed that Marotta believes a permanent deal can be struck as the club are interested in keeping him, and the player himself is eager to remain in Turin.
“He’s expressed his happiness at being here with us, and [his happiness to] continue here in future,” Marotta said.
“We’ll look at things with Chelsea at the appropriate time, but it’s very likely that there will be a good conclusion.”
