Arsenal have reportedly had a bid rejected for Juventus forward Juan Cuadrado, with the Old Lady holding out for nearly twice the price of their initial offer.
According to The Sun, Juventus have turned down a £17m bid from Arsenal and are holding out for £30m. Tottenham Hotspur are also interested but aren’t believed to have made a bid as of yet. Formerly of Chelsea, Cuadrado joined Juve on a permanent deal in 2017 after two seasons on loan.
The 29-year-old made 30 Serie A appearances for the Italians last season, scoring and creating eight goals. His last game for the Old Lady was in the Champions League final where he was sent off minutes after coming off the bench.
Arsenal are keen to strengthen their attack with the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Lucas Perez and Theo Walcott facing uncertain futures at the club. The Gunners could be short on options and are desperate to bolster the squad with enough time to integrate them in the squad.
It’s unknown whether Arsenal consider the Colombian international worth £30m, however.
