The Colombia international has said goodbye to the Fiorentina fans and is set to seal a switch to the Blues before the window closes.

Chelsea are seemingly set to finalise the purchase of Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina before the transfer window closes, with Vincenzo Montella admitting that the Colombian was on his way to the West London club.

The electrifying attacking midfielder arrived has arrived in London with his agent to conclude a deal with the current Premier League leaders, with Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio capturing the image as can be seen above.

Cuadrado has been in excellent form for club and country over the last couple of seasons, and captured the imagination with some mesmerising performances for Colombia at the World Cup in the summer.

With Andre Schurrle looking set to sign for Wolfsburg and Mohamed Salah heading to Fiorentina on loan as part of the Cuadrado deal, the South American will battle against Willian and Ramires for a place on the right-hand side of Jose Mourinho’s midfield.

Cuadrado will add energy, pace and trickery to an already impressive Chelsea attack. The Colombian has scored four Serie A goals and created four assists this season for the Viola.

After drawing 1-1 with title rivals Manchester City yesterday at Stamford Bridge, the Blues have a five-point lead at the top of the Premier League table currently.
