The Gunners failed with a move for the 25-year-old during the January transfer window but will press ahead with their interest in him at the end of the season as he continues to catch the eye with a continuing array of fine performances.
Cuadrado, a fast and powerful right winger who can also play as a striker, is part-owned by Fiorentina and their Italian rivals Udinese, meaning that negotiations to bring him on board could be made more difficult if the northern club don’t want to sell.
Furthermore, the Gunners face some stiff competition from fellow high flyers Juventus and Bayern Munich are both said to be pondering their own moves for him.
Arsenal are now said to be ready to jump the queue with a £15m offer, which would be split between the two Italian sides, which they hope will be enough to tempt them to sell.
The former Independiente Medellin star has scored six goals this season, including one which helped Fiorentina to the Coppa Italia final this week.
