Serie A champions Juventus are ready to make Juan Cuadrado's loan move from Chelsea a permanent one by offering the Premier League giants £14million.
The Colombian arrived in Turin in the summer after agreeing to a season-long loan with Massimiliano Allegri's men.
Cuadrado, who only joined Chelsea back in January from Italian side Fiorentina, failed to make the cut at Stamford Bridge and couldn't force his way into Jose Mourinho's first-team.

The likes of Eden Hazard, Oscar and Willian were all above Cuadrado in the pecking order, and after Pedro's arrival from FC Barcelona over the summer, it was clear that the 27-year-old wasn't in Mourinho's mind for the 2015/2016 campaign.
The midfielder agreed a loan-switch back to Italy with Juve ready to take him on loan, but after just two months, they already want to make it a permanent deal.
Cuadrado Back in Italy
Cuadrado has made five Serie A appearances for The Old Lady and despite not scoring a single goal, Juve officials have been impressed with his consistent performances so far.
Chelsea coughed up £23.5million to sign Cuadrado back in January, but according to reports, they could be set for a loss if they do sell him permanently, with Juve preparing a £14m offer, £9.5m less than what the Blues spent just nine months ago.
However, after just 15 appearances for Mourinho's side, his valuation declined dramatically and the London side may have to accept the hit.
Agent Set for Talks
According to Goal Italy, Cuadrado's agent is set to fly over to London in order to hold formal talks with the Chelsea board.
Alessandro Lucci will discuss Cuadrado's future with the board and will look to secure a deal for his client.
However, it's reported that Chelsea officials are in no rush to green-light the permanent deal, especially after their poor start to the new campaign.
Just two wins in the Premier League so far could see Mourinho change his mind about his first-team players which could path a way for Cuadrado to make a shock return.
