Chelsea transfer news: Blues pushing to complete £18m winger deal

Posted by

Chelsea transfer news sees winger deal likely.

Chelsea are seemingly ready to sell Juan Cuadrado this summer if they receive a bid of around £18m in the coming weeks, according to The Sun.

The Colombian international has struggled to fit in at Stamford Bridge since his move from Fiorentina in the January transfer window, and it looks already like he could be heading for the exit door after recent links to other clubs.

According to a report from talkSPORT earlier this month, Juventus could be ready to take Cuadrado back to Serie A this summer, while another article in the Independent suggest Inter Milan and AS Roma are also after him.

Still, The Sun says Chelsea are not interested in loaning the player out, and will accept taking a £5m hit on what they paid for him in the winter if it means they can offload him permanently.

There has been some speculation that a replacement could already be being lined up by the Blues, with the Metro claiming the club are interested in Napoli winger Jose Callejon for that wide-right role, and on recent form it looks like the Spaniard would be an upgrade on the South American flop.

Although it is approaching the start of the season, it seems Chelsea are still not against making some late changes to their squad, including a deal to let Cuadrado leave.
