Juventus are reportedly demanding £30million for winger Juan Cuadrado, according to the Sun. The Serie A club are believed to have rejected a £17.6m bid for the 29 year old from Arsenal, leaving a £12million gap in the two side’s valuations of the player.
The Gunner’s London rivals Tottenham are also believed to be looking at the Colombian international, but have yet to place a bid of their own. The midfielder previously had a brief spell at Chelsea but never settled during his six months at Stamford Bridge.
After a two year loan spell with the Bianconeri, Cuadrado will join Juventus permanently for £17million at the end of this month . It seems likely that the Gunners were looking to take the winger off Juve’s hands straight away with the Italian side only making a small profit from the deal.
Juventus were never likely to agree to such a transfer, especially after Cuadrado played 45 games in all competitions last season, scoring three goals and providing 10 assists.
