Juventus are pressing the accelerator to snap up Juan Cuadrado and are willing to paying a €5m loan fee for the Chelsea winger.

The Colombia international, who joined Chelsea from Fiorentina in January 2015, has failed to make his mark at Stamford Bridge and was sent on a season-long loan deal to Juventus last term.

Although Cuadrado returned to Chelsea at the start of the season, the 28-year-old is yet to make any appearances in the present campaign as he wants to return to Italy, with Juventus open to paying a €5m loan fee.

A move Juventus on yet another loan deal has been mooted all summer, and Cuadrado’s agent Alessandro Lucci will hold a fresh round of talks with Chelsea in London today, according to Italian broadcaster Sky Italia.

Cuadrado, whose present contract with Chelsea runs until 2019, has thus far amassed just 15 appearances for the Blues, managing just one assist.


On the other hand, he scored five times and set up eight goals in 40 games for Juventus last season.
