Juventus have reached an agreement worth £15.75million with Chelsea over the potential signing of Juan Cuadrado, Express reports.
The 27-year-old is currently on loan with the Serie A champions and it is now looking likely that he will not return to Stamford Bridge.
Cuadrado only joined the Blues during the January window, but after failing to impress manager Jose Mourinho during the second half of the previous campaign, he was sent out in the summer.
General manager Giuseppe Marotta also fuelled the speculation by revealing that even though there is no option to buy, he is hoping the Colombia international continues playing in Italy.
“We have no agreement to [sign him on a permanent basis], it is just a loan [without option to purchase him],” he said.
“He’s expressed his happiness at being here with us, and his happiness to continue here in future.
“We’ll look at things with Chelsea at the appropriate time, but it’s very likely that there will be a good conclusion.”
It is also said that his agent Alessandro Lucci has undergone talks with Juventus over the transfer and is now expected to follow through with the move.
The winger has so far featured in nine league matches for the Italian giants since his arrival, scoring one goal while providing a further two assists.
