Juventus’ failure to land Arsenal target Julian Draxler has seen them switch their attention to Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado, according to the Daily Express.

The Express claim that the Colombian is free to leave Stamford Bridge this summer, having only played 26 minutes of their first two matches of the new Premier League season.

The Old Lady are hoping that the 27-year-old will relish the opportunity to return to Serie A after a difficult time with The Blues, and plan to make a loan offer for the man who had taken Italy by storm in the early part of last season with Fiorentina (via Express).

Massimiliano Allegri’s interest comes after the Scudetto winners failed in their bid to land Schalke star Julian Draxler. The Express report that the World Cup winner has a £31m release clause in his contract, but Juventus were only happy to offer £14m up front with another £7m in additional payments.

That could leave the door open for Arsene Wenger to make a late attempt to bring the 21-year-old to the Emirates.
