Everton have sent ‘a proposal’ to Juventus star Juan Cuadrado, who looks set to leave the Italian giants this summer
That’s according to Fichajes.net, who say the Colombian could be available for less than €15m, a price Everton would consider a ‘bargain’.
The website explains that Cuadrado is set to enter the final year of his contract with Juventus, and there is no sign of a renewal at the club.
Indeed, they have decided to go in a different direction, with the club wanting to renovate the squad, and that will require getting rid of some of the big hitters.
Cuadrado is one of them, and, given his big wages, his future is now in the air. He has to think about a move elsewhere and ‘has received a proposal’ from Everton.
Their interest comes courtesy of Carlo Ancelotti, who has always been a ‘great admirer’ of the Colombian and needs a versatile player like him.
His ability to play at full-back, in midfield and as a right-winger would be highly useful for the Italian, and thus they’ve shown an interest.
Key to that is the starting price for a deal, with it believed Everton could get him ‘for less than €15m’ a ‘bargain’ for a player who ‘always delivers on the pitch’ and can play numerous roles in the squad.
Whether he’d make the move to Goodison Park isn’t mentioned, but the presence of Ancelotti and international teammate James Rodríguez at the club would surely work in their favour.
