Arsenal set to lose out to Barcelona in fight for €30m star?

Published Add your comment

Arsenal have fallen behind in the race for Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado, after reports emerged claiming that Barcelona are set to offer a lucrative package to land the star.

The Gunners have been linked with a possible summer move for the Colombian international, with certain rumours suggesting it could take up to €30million to convince his current club to agree to a sale.

However, according to Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are prepared to offer right-back Dani Alves as part of a package that would see the 25-year-old move to the Nou Camp ahead of the Emirates.

It’s thought that Fiorentina would be open to this proposed offer, as they see Alves as a player of high quality. This means that Arsene Wenger may struggle to land Cuadrado unless he can somehow conjure up a similar offer.

The Arsenal boss is said to be keen improving his team this year, with the acquisition of a new striker of paramount importance. However in the race for Cuadrado, he could ultimately be left disappointed.
