The race for Fiorentina midfielder Juan Cuadrado is heating up, with the player again proving his worth by hitting a brace for La Viola in their 2-1 away Serie A win over Chievo Verona yesterday.

Cuadrado has been in superb form for Vincenzo Montella's men so far this season, with four goals in six Serie A games, and is attracting attention from clubs right across Europe.


According to Tutto Mercato, the Colombian's agent was in the stands at Chievo, alongside a representative from Arsenal.

However, Cuadrado's agent plans meetings with Bayern Munich and Juventus this week, as he shapes up to potentially move his client on from Fiorentina in January.


The 25-year-old only joined Fiorentina on a permanent basis from Udinese earlier this year, having been loaned out to La Viola from their Serie A companions in 2012/13.

Cuadrado arrived in Italy in 2009, switching to Udinese from Independiente Medellin.

At international level he has so far collected 23 caps for Colombia, scoring three goals.

Extremely versatile, Cuadrado has been deployed all along the right flank throughout his career, but is most frequently seen in an attacking role.
