Chelsea fans cannot wait to hear what Metro have to say here in the Football Transfer Tavern after our landlord claims the Blues are now leading the race for £36 million-rated Juan Cuadrado.
Jose Mourinho may have claimed he was done with his summer spending but it seems that after allowing Marko Marin to join Serie A side Fiorentina on loan, the Blues are now hopeful they can land Colombian international Cuadrado should they meet the asking price.
With Manchester United and Barcelona also keen on the winger, Jose Mourinho will have his work cut out to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
However, Chelsea need another forward, they have the money to spend and it seems they are now in the good books of the Viola and are looking to use that to their full advantage.
After seeing Didier Drogba get injured and having to face up to the prospect of a long period of time with only Diego Costa and Fernando Torres to call upon, any player who can find the back of the net would certainly go down well at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea fans. What do you think of this proposed deal? Do you think a classic number nine is needed instead? Let us know your thoughts below.
