Arsenal and Tottenham are interested in signing Colombian international and Juventus star Juan Cuadrado. Who will win the battle?
According to an exclusive report covered by The Sun, the Gunners made an offer worth 17.6million pounds to sign the South American star but the Old Lady rejected the move.
The British source claimed that the Italian champions are looking to sell their prized asset for a fee worth 30 million pounds ($38million).
Cuadrado has played in the Premier League with Chelsea but after warming the bench for six months under Mourinho, he was sent to Juventus. The 29-year-old star can play in multiple attacking positions but naturally, he is a right winger
Last season, he featured in 45 games for the Bianconeri in all competitions, scored 3 goals and provided 10 assists.
The Sun claim that Alexis Sanchez may leave the Emirates this summer. In such a scenario, Arsenal are targeting Cuadrado but they face serious competition from Tottenham, who are keen on signing him to improve their attacking department.
A top player like him deserves to play in Europe’s elite competition and one must not forget that Tottenham will be playing in the Champions League next season whereas Arsenal will be taking part in the Europa League.
