Chelsea & Serie A club negotiating £23m forward deal, manager makes him top priority

Blues in talks over deal for South American.

Chelsea are in talks with Juventus over the possible £23m sale of Colombian winger Juan Cuadrado, who is a top priority target for Massimiliano Allegri.

The Blues have not found a place for the former Fiorentina attacker in their starting lineup since he joined in the January transfer window, and it now looks like he could make a quick exit from Stamford Bridge.

According to, an offer of £23m could be enough to persuade the club to let Cuadrado go, though previous reports state Juve only want the player on loan.
