Arsenal transfers: Fiorentina to evaluate Juan Cuadrado future
Arsenal transfers: Fiorentina manager Vincenzo Montella are set to evaluate interest in Juan Cuadrado
Vincenzo Montella says Fiorentina will evaluate interest in Juan Cuadrado and see if potential suitors are willing to match the club’s asking price.
The Colombia international has become one of Europe’s most-highly sought-after players after scoring one goal and making four assists in five World Cup appearances in Brazil.
We need to evaluate the player’s aspirations and, above all, if there is a club out there that can pay what he is truly worth
Cuadrado has been linked with four-time European champions Barcelona in recent weeks, whilst Arsenal are reportedly monitoring the Fiorentina forward.
And manager Montella hinted that la Viola would be open to selling the winger if their valuation was met.
“We need to evaluate the player’s aspirations and, above all, if there is a club out there that can pay what he is truly worth,” said Montella.
The former Roma forward also gave an update on the progress being made at Fiorentina as the Florence outfit bid to improve on last season’s fourth-placed finish.
“We are still constructing. The basic skeleton of the squad is good, but we need to perfect some things and are working on it with the club.
“We need patience. I’m evaluating some young players during pre-season and we’ll see what the future holds.”
