Juventus have confirmed they are hoping to take Juan Cuadrado back on loan and are keen to open talks with Chelsea.
Cuadrado joined the Blues in the 2014 January transfer window but has failed to make an impact at Stamford Bridge and was loaned to Juve last term.
The Colombia international scored four goals from 28 Serie A appearances and impressed with his displays for the Old Lady.
He is now back with Chelsea but was left out of Antonio Conte’s squad to play West Ham in the Premier League opener, with rumours that he is surplus to requirements.
And Juve general manager Beppe Marotta confessed that he would be welcomed back to Turin with open arms if Chelsea would sanction a deal.
“Of course we would welcome Cuadrado for many reasons,” he told Il Corriere della Sera. “He always behaved well here and the experience we had with him was extremely positive.
“It’s a question that will be resolved in the next few days at the most. He’s a Chelsea player for now, but if the English club are open to talks, well we will open dialogue. We’ll have to see.”
