Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are by no strangers to seeing their players linked with Atletico Madrid, though reports from Spanish outlet Fichajes suggest the La Liga giants have now added Juan Cuadrado to their wish list.
Los Rojiblancos have been strongly linked with a move for Blues forward Diego Costa in what would be an emotional return to the Spanish capital for the 27-year old marksman.
However, he is reportedly not the only name on the books of the Blues that Diego Simeone is casting a watchful eye over in regards to a potential summer move.
Cuadrado is currently on loan with Serie A champions Juventus after initially flopping in his first six months as a Chelsea player following a move from Fiorentina in January 2015.
‘El Cholo’ is understood to be a fan of the 27-year old’s versatility, as the former Udinese ace is able to operate as either a right-back or further up the wing.
As a result, they could steal a march this summer and table an offer of around €15m to bring him to the Vincente Calderon.
