Arsenal are understood to have made further enquiries from Juventus about the availability of Juan Cuadrado.

The versatile winger is a subject of enquiries yet again from the Gunners who also reportedly approached the Italian giants regarding the player during last summer’s transfer window.

Following the sale of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the summer window, Wenger was understood to be interested in signing another wingback capable of providing cover and competition on the flanks.

Cuadrado was then heavily linked with a move to the Emirates in the same window he made his move to Juventus permanent. All was no to be in the end as Cuadrado obviously remained in Italy with no report of the Gunners lodging an official offer.

With the winter window fast approaching and the Gunners still looking light in the wide areas, reports of the Gunners fresh enquires have again resurfaced.

According to Raisport via The Daily Cannon, there has been a new enquiry about Cuadrado from the Gunners ahead of the January transfer window , and Juan may want to leave the club because he is ‘disgruntled’ (along with teammates Lichtsteiner and Sandro).

The Colombian international’s form has improved in the current campaign and he is enjoying a better campaign compared to last season which was also quite impressive by the way.

Last season he scored three goals and provided 10 assists in 45 matches, whereas this year he so far has four goals and five assists in just 18matches. Haven already beaten his goal tally, he is on target to do the same with assists before the season is out.

Wenger’s interest in Cuadrado is very much understandable, Kieran Gibbs was also let go last summer. The Gunners currently look one Hector Bellerin or Sead Kolasinac injury away from potential crisis in the wide areas with the current squad.
