Juan Cuadrado: Italian giants WANT Chelsea winger but he’s NOT their first choice target

Juventus are interested in signing Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado before the close of the summer window; however, a move to Turin may depend on activity – or lack thereof – elsewhere.

According to Sky Italia [via Sky Sports], Juve are keen on the signature of the Colombia international, but he is third on their transfer wish list behind Schalke’s Julian Draxler and Borussia Dortmund’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The report states that the Italian giants are after a new attacking-midfielder, likely as a consequence of the sale of Arturo Vidal to Bayern Munich and Andrea Pirlo to New York City FC, but an offer for Cuadrado will not be made unless they fail in their attempts to sign Draxler and Mkhitaryan.

Cuadrado was quickly the first name emerge as a west London casualty following the confirmed signing of Pedro Rodriguez in a £21million deal from Barcelona.

Surprisingly, Willian Borges da Silva could also be considering his future at Stamford Bridge, with reports claiming that the Brazilian’s agent has offered his client to Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain, perhaps following concerns that Pedro could be set to take his place.
