Arsenal could revive their interest in Colombian winger Juan Cuadrado but may have to pay a sizeable amount to tempt him away from Turin.

Cuadrado has been linked with Arsenal a couple of times this summer, although the majority of the reports came from the more unreliable sources in Italy. It’s one of those sources, Calciomercato, who have resurrected the link.

There’s very little substance to their report, only saying the Gunners are the most interested along with Roma and AC Milan. But Cuadrado would be an interesting option for Arsenal.

The Colombian can play as a right-winger or right wing-back and would provide stiff competition for Hector Bellerin, especially if Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain leaves this summer. Mathieu Debuchy and Carl Jenkinson don’t appear to be in the picture and will be sold ahead of the new season.

As for Cuadrado, he’s made an impact at Juventus during their Serie A title wins and last season’s run to the Champions League final, scoring and creating 10 goals in all competitions. However, there are a number of factors going against this deal.

One is that the Old Lady only signed Cuadrado on a permanent basis for £17m this summer. If Juventus are open to a sale, they would certainly look for more money than that. Arsenal may be reluctant to pay out a big fee for a 29-year-old.

Another factor is that Cuadrado is reportedly happy at Juventus. He gets plenty of game time in Italy and has had the best years of his career there. He probably wouldn’t be a first team regular at Arsenal and has already had a negative experience in England with Chelsea.

Arsenal are looking at wingers this summer, with AS Monaco’s Thomas Lemar as their top target. There haven’t been many links to wing-backs, however Arsene Wenger seems to be content with Bellerin and Oxlade-Chamberlain as his right wing-back options.
