Juan Cuadrado Targeted by West Ham as Hammers Try to Bring Juventus Winger Back to London

​West Ham are one of several clubs hoping to sign Juventus winger Juan Cuadrado this summer.

The Colombian is no stranger to the capital, having spent time there with Chelsea before being loaned out and subsequently sold to Juventus in 2017. 

Whilst Cuadrado’s time in west London can hardly be considered a success – as he struggled to establish himself in the starting lineup, making only 13 appearances before his exit from the club – he did leave for Italy with a Premier League and League Cup winners’ medal in his suitcase.

Since arriving at Turin, Cuadrado has continued his habit of winning trophies, having been ever present in a Juventus side that have won four consecutive Serie A titles and three Coppa Italia triumphs. 

However, this year, the Colombian has seen his playing time cut down thanks to a combination of a meniscal injury that sidelined him for four months, and the form of his teammates Douglas Costa and Federico Bernardeschi. 

With his contract due to expire in 2020, Calciomercato have cited Tuttosport’s report that the former Chelsea man could be on his way back to one of their Premier League rivals. 

West Ham are not the only side keeping an eye on Cuadrado’s current situation, with fellow Premier League rivals Watford also reportedly interested, alongside Sevilla and Valencia of La Liga. 

It is understood that Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri would prefer to keep hold of the experienced winger, but offers of £15-20m could convince the Italian champions to part ways with the player.
