Fiorentina have received “no formal offers” for Arsenal target Juan Cuadrado, according to Fiorentina sporting director Daniele Prade.

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 will do everything possible to keep him, but we want him to understand our position

Cuadrado has been linked with four-time European champions Barcelona in recent weeks, whilst Arsenal are reportedly monitoring the Fiorentina forward.

However, la Viola chief Prade underlined the Florence club’s determination to keep the Colombian winger.

“This club has made a great effort to get the second half of Cuadrado,” Prade told TuttoMercatoWeb.

“But we’ll talk with him when he comes back off his holidays.

“We will do everything possible to keep him, but we want him to understand our position. As yet however, no formal offers have arrived.”

Cuadrado scored 11 goals and made five assists in 32 Serie A appearances last season.
