Arguably the best singing of the January transfer window, Chelsea forked out £26.8 million for Juan Cuadrado to make the move from Fiorentina to west London.

The speedy winger impressed at the 2014 World Cup, apart of the Colombia squad which reached the quarter finals. 

While some Chelsea fans still may not yet be familiar with the Colombian international, he conducted his first interview with the club today so they could find out more about their latest signing.
