Cuadrado arrives in Italy for Juventus medical

Juventus appear to be moving closer to the expected signing of Chelsea's Juan Cuadrado after releasing pictures of the winger being welcomed in Italy.

Juve chief executive Giuseppe Marotta was quoted over the weekend saying the Champions League finalists were hopeful of landing the Colombia international on loan.

The Turin club have now further declared their interest by releasing a brief clip of the 27-year-old apparently being mobbed by fans on arrival at Malpensa Airport in northern Italy.

An English-language tweet stated: "Thumbs up at Malpensa Airport as @Cuadrado arrives for his Juventus medical! #WelcomeCuadrado ."

Cuadrado, one of Colombia's star players at last year's World Cup, has failed to make an impact at Stamford Bridge since moving from Fiorentina for an initial £23.3m in February.

He signed a four-and-a-half year contract at Chelsea but it seems the club are already willing to allow him to play elsewhere.
