Arsenal handed surprise boost in race for £15m star

Published Add your comment

Arsenal may be handed a significant boost in their race to sign pacey winger Juan Cuadrado this summer, as Fiorentina have made a move to buy Udinese’s stake in the player, according to the Metro.

The Gunners have been chasing the highly-rated Colombian for some time now, and at £15million he is well within their price range.

However currently Cuadrado is part-owned by both Udinese and Fiorentina, and so negotiations over a possible transfer have been almost impossible to conduct. Recent reports suggested that Arsene Wenger could try to offer both parties £7.5million each in order to tempt them into agreeing to a sale, but now it looks as though Fiorentina may have made the job a little easier.

The Metro reports that the Serie A outfit are attempting to buy Udinese’s rights to the player in order to sell him on for maximum profit in the summer, which looks promising from an Arsenal point of view.

Though Bayern Munich have also registered an interest, it’s the Gunners who will be favourites to capture his signature if Fiorentina are successful in their endeavours.

Fans will be hopeful that Cuadrado could become the first of a few signings this summer as Wenger looks to tweak the flaws within his team.
