Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado has revealed that he's focussing on improvement and wants to play for a "big club", reports talkSPORT

The Colombian international, who is currently starring in Serie A, has been linked with a move to both Arsenal and Barcelona and has been rated at £20 million

However, despite admitting that he's a fan of the Barcelona style of play, the winger has insisted that he's yet to make contact with the La Liga giants.

The Colombian international told Spanish newspaper El 9 Esportiu: "There have been no contacts with Barcelona, but I'm working to improve myself and play for a big club.

"However, my mind is with Fiorentina, a club where I am fine. Barcelona are one of the clubs I follow the most because I like their style of play. Even at Fiorentina, possession is our strong point."

However Barcelona may well face competition for the star as Bayern Munich and Juventus have joined Arsenal in monitoring the 25-year-old. 

Arsenal are in need of a new winger after selling Gervinho last summer and with the likes of Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lukas Podolski all having struggled with injury this season, Cuadrado could act as a fine signing for Arsene Wenger. 

It remains to be seen as to whether the Colombian star would be tempted with a move to Premier League leaders Arsenal.
