Chelsea set to complete €20m attacker sale

Serie A side Juventus are keen to complete the permanent signing of loaned in Chelsea man Juan Cuadrado and are willing to pay the Stamford Bridge outfit €20m (£14.7m) for the Colombian according to Goal.com.

Jose Mourinho brought in the 27-year-old South American in January but the World Cup star failed to impress last term and was swiftly sent out to Turin and has been a moderate success back in the Italian top tier.

Cuadrado proved a success with Fiorentina and his efforts during the 2014 World Cup finals convinced Chelsea to spend £23.3m on the wide-man and the Premier League side are thought to want a fee nearer £17m before they will consider selling the attacker.

Given the two sides are not far apart in their valuation it’s a fair bet that a permanent sale will be completed in January.

Cuadrado has appeared in six of Juventus’s seven Serie A fixtures thus far this term and Massimiliano Allegri’s side are some way off the title pace and certainly appear to miss the likes of Arturo Vidal, Andrea Pirlo and Carlos Tevez, all of whom left the club over the summer.
