As Mohamed Salah looks all but set to join AS Roma, Chelsea are looking at potential replacements with Juan Cuadrado leading the list. Cuadrado proved himself at the World Cup with four assists to his name and he has developed into one of the most effective right-wings in Europe. Although he is yet to fulfill his potential this term, he is still an integral star to Fiorentina.

Cuadrado's pace and skillset make him a dangerous player going forward, and he is capable of thriving in a counter-attacking system.


Along with this, he's shown his ability to track back and mark his full-back. With four goals and four assists in Serie A this term, Cuadrado has shown he has a much better end product than the current number one right-wing at Chelsea, Willian. Willian's work rate is phenomenal, however, his end product is remarkably low for such a talented player with only one goal and one assist to his name so far this season.

Cuadrado has the finishing ability that Chelsea lack on the right-wing and the capability to assist Branislav Ivanović with his defensive tasks. His versatility would make him the best choice at right-wing for Chelsea, should he to join them. 


Reports say talks have stalled due to Fiorentina demanding that his £27 million buy-out clause needs to be activated. The player is said to want the move, but Chelsea are unwilling to spend in excess of £21 million on him. Mourinho himself said he wouldn't fit in at the club, but, after a dip in their performances this season, Chelsea need an ambitious and quality signing to better stake their claim for the Premier League crown.

With his current crop of players faltering, most noticeably Mohamed Salah and André Schürrle, and with Willian delivering little to no end product, changes are needed on the right-wing for Chelsea. Can Cuadrado be the solution to Chelsea's puzzling problems on the right-wing?
