The Juventus star is on both Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal's radar, according to reports.

Italian media outlet Gazzetta dello Sport claim that Juventus have quoted the Gunners £31 million if they want to sign Juan Cuadrado this summer, and Spurs should seriously consider challenging their arch rivals for the Colombian.

Tottenham fans are growing increasingly more frustrated with their club's lack of transfer activity, and the signing of the 29-year-old former Chelsea star would be the perfect remedy for that.

Cuadrado is an orthodox right winger by trade, and his abundance of pace along with his direct playing style would offer the Lilywhites an entirely different threat in the final third.

With Erik Lamela's expected return date still yet to be determined, the acquisition of a talented attacker will surely feature highly on Mauricio Pochettino's wish-list this summer, and the Colombian ace could be just the man for the job.

Not only would they be getting a top class performer for their money, but they would also get one over Arsenal by preventing them from adding the Juve star to their ranks.

This season's Premier League will arguably be the most competitive since its' inception back in 1992, and it will be of absolute paramount importance for Spurs to supplement their already strong group of players with some world-class stars this summer, if they are to go one step further than last term.

And by signing Cuadrado, Pochettino would undoubtedly improve his options in the wide attacking areas, and consequently, his Tottenham squad would be in a far better position from which to mount a sustained challenge for the title this season.
