Arsenal braced for €30m summer bidding war

Published Add your comment

Fiorentina's star winger Juan Cuadrado is set to spark a bidding war among Europe's top clubs this summer, with Sky Sport Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio reporting that Arsenal are leading the chase for a player who will cost any potential suitor a fee in the region of €30m.

Cuadrado has attracted a growing list of admirers with a string of confident performances in Serie A this season, including the Gunners, Juventus and Bayern Munich.

La Viola are keen to keep the Colombian international but do now own him outright, splitting 50% of the player's rights with Udinese.

The 25-year-old is very part much part of Fiorentina's plans moving forward, but Vincenzo Montella's men face a €15m bill to make the wing wizard their player this summer.

If La Viola decide they would sooner cash in on a star performer following the World Cup a host of clubs are looking to pounce, but will have to fork out a whopping €30m to land Cuadrado if Sky Sport Italia are to be believed.

Cuadrado did sign a new contract with improved terms at Fiorentina, which runs until 2017, but a familiar issue in terms of co-ownership of a Serie A star threatens to disrupt that happy marriage ahead of Colombian's World Cup charge.
