West Ham have been named among the clubs interested in signing Juan Cuadrado from Juventus, as per reports in Italy.

Italian media outlet Tuttosport claims that West Ham and Watford are interested in bringing the ex-Chelsea winger back to the Premier League.

Juventus are reportedly willing to sell him for between €15m and €20m so he would cost upwards of £15m.

West Ham and Watford will face competition from teams across Europe. Spanish duo Valencia and Sevilla are interested as well as many Italian clubs.

Who is Juan Cuadrado?

Cuadrado operates as a winger for Juventus, where he has been since his 2015 move from Chelsea. His time in England was largely unsuccessful under Jose Mourinho.

The Colombia international managed just 13 Premier League appearances and he did not score while at Stamford Bridge.

Cuadrado’s time at Juventus has been more fruitful but he has dropped down the pecking order this season. The 30-year-old has played 19 times for Juve this term, scoring once and providing three assists.

West Ham are quite well stocked in the winger department with Felipe Anderson and Michail Antonio in form and Andriy Yarmolenko set to return next season.

But Manuel Pellegrini might still look at Cuadrado if he feels he can strengthen his side. West Ham would have to fend off widespread competition to land their man, though.
