Colombian winger Juan Cuadrado was the hero for Fiorentina on Sunday as he bagged both goals in a 2-1 win at Chievo on Sunday.
In the stands at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi was Arsenal’s transfer “guru,” or “fixer,” Dick Law, scouting Cuadrado as he produced his best display of the campaign, according to Sky Italia.
This information comes via the always well connected Gianluca Di Marzio and suggests Arsenal are looking for attacking reinforcements in the January transfer window.
Law was accompanied by Cuadrado’s agent Alessandro Lucci and reports in Italy suggest Arsenal are preparing a 30 million euro bid for Cuadrado in the January transfer window.
Even a major bid is expected to be rejected by Fiorentina in January, according to Sky Italia but Cuadrado is owned by The Viola and Udinese.
Besides Arsenal, Juventus are also understood to be tracking Fiorentina’s Colombian winger Juan Cuadrado.
Both Cuadrado goals for Fiorentina at Chievo can be seen below, followed by the obligatory “YouTube scouting video.”
