Is Cuadrado heading back to England? Arsenal and Tottenham touted
Juventus have been very busy this summer, but some of their new arrivals mean it’s all-but curtains for Juan Cuadrado in Turin.
Despite only signing the Colombian on a permanent basis from Chelsea earlier this year, the Old Lady have since added fellow wingers Douglas Costa and Federico Bernardeschi to their roster.
But Juve’s loss could be North London’s gain, with both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur reportedly keen.
While the arrivals of Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette have been welcomed at the Emirates, another signing or two wouldn’t go amiss for Arsene Wenger’s side.
They’ve still done more business than Spurs however, who have yet to sign a player this summer.
They’re under no obligation to do so of course, but the local rivals are both behind Chelsea and the two Manchester clubs in the betting for this year’s Premier League title.
So the pair of them could well use the addition of Cuadrado, who has unfinished business in England after that dismal spell with Chelsea.
He’s kick-started his career in Italy though, and has been a first-team regular for Juve over the past two seasons, scoring eight goals while supplying 18 assists.
Our traders reckon it’s Arsenal who are most likely to secure the 29-year-old’s services, with 2/1 saying he becomes a Gooner before this summer’s window shuts.
It doesn’t look good for Tottenham though. Despite being linked with the winger our traders don’t see it happening at 9/1, suggesting boss Mauricio Pochettino won’t be splashing the cash just yet.
