Recent reports have shown that there is a serious chase for the legs of 25-years -old Serie A winger by three top English Premier League clubs and La Liga giants.
Manchester United, Liverpool and Barcelona are set to go head-to-head for the signature of Arsenal tagret Juan Cuadrado.
The current market value of the talented winger is in the region of £20m, which was considered a good deal going by what he is capable of doing on the field of play. His talent is quite unique going by what he had been able to achieve within a short spell at the Italian side Fiorentina.
According to Italian sports newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, Louis Van Gaal is determined to land the versatile wide man for a fee in the region of £20million.
But the Dutchman faces stiff competition from new Barcelona boss Luis Enrique, who similarly to the United manager is trying to reverse his sides ailing fortunes with an injection of pace and power.
Brendan Rodgers has also been linked with a move for the Columbian international, however Liverpool remain on the periphery of any deal.
Arsenal on the other hand are playing down talks of their interest in the winger, but are believed to be on his case with talks of a move for the versatile winger being plotted by the North London outfit in the summer.
The 26-year-old is the lynchpin of a highly-rated Columbian squad, and having aided his side in their comprehensive victory over Greece 3-0 – an inflated price-tag seemed inevitable.
Figures ranging from £15-£20m have been thrown around, however reports continue to suggest that the Italian side Fiorentina will sell for no less than their £31million valuation of the player.
Cuadrado has enjoyed a profitable season in Serie A – netting 11 goals with 5 assists to boot, helping the Viola’s reach the Europa League.
Whether Arsenal would step up their interest for the pacy forward remains uncertain but that of Barcelona, Liverpool an Manchester United have been widely publicised.
