Barcelona are considering a bid for Juventus winger Juan Cuadrado this summer after all but giving up on Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin.
The Catalan giants are willing to make a €30m bid to sign the Colombian international to play right-back next season after struggling to convince any of their other targets to make the switch, reports Goal.
Cuadrado is deemed a defensive winger, boasting excessive pace and high levels of industry, having attributes that would make him a good attacking full-back.
With Sergi Roberto and Aleix Vidal having struggled to impress in the role last season, Barcelona are looking to the transfer market to sign an alternative. Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin and Tottenham’s Kyle Walker aren’t looking to move to Spain, however.
Barcelona would have to pay €50m to sign Bellerin this summer, but just over half that price could see them land Cuadrado, who last season made 30 Serie A appearances, scoring and creating eight goals.
The La Liga giants may have to wait until July to sign a new player as their transfer budget for 2017/18 is yet to be released.
