Arsenal are keeping a close eye on Fiorentina's Colombian ace Juan Cuadrado, talkSPORT reports.

The winger, who can also double up as a competent full-back, only signed for the Italian outfit in the summer, but his impressive performances in the Serie A have prompted speculation that he may move to a bigger club as early as January.

A host of European sides are said to have been tracking the 25-year-old, with Bayern Munich, Juventus and Monaco all having been linked with him in the past.

However it's Arsenal who are now thought to be the most interested in securing his services, having sent officials to watch him play during Fiorentina's 2-1 win over Chievo this weekend.

Cuadrado netted a brace to guarantee his side victory in that particular fixture, so it's likely the scouts will return with stellar reports.

The Colombian arrived at Fiorentina for just £4million, after impressing on a loan-spell from Udinese.

However Arsene Wenger will have to part with an estimated £20million if he wants any chance of landing his man, which may prove to be a stumbling block.
