The former Chelsea man was put up for sale by his club during the summer, asking for around £26m, per The Metromeaning it was no surprise when Arsenal’s bid of £17m was hastily rejected, so say The Sun.

The midfielder was sent off in the 2017 Champions League final in May as Juventus fell to a 4-1 defeat to holders Real Madrid.

Cuadrado was considered a major flip during his Chelsea days, unable to score or provide an assist in a competitive game for the Blues in fourteen games.

However, the Colombian has been one of the Old Lady’s best places this season, grabbing a goal and two assist in his first four games.

Speaking after Juventus’ 1-0 win at home to former club Fiorentina, in which he provided the assist for the winning goal, speaking about the transfer speculation the 29-year-old claimed:

 

“I’ve never really thought of leaving Juventus, I am happy to have stayed here because this club trust me. I am happy of my performances and I am happy with my new teammates as well.”
