Barcelona are reportedly interested in signing Colombia international forward Juan Cuadrado, according to Goal.

The La Liga giants, who face Granada in the Spanish top-flight tonight, are understood to be long-term admirers of the Chelsea winger, who is currently on loan at Juventus.

The 28-year-old, who has 60 international caps for his country, has scored one goal and provided two assists in seven appearances in all competitions for the defending Serie A champions so far this season.

Cuadrado also spent the 2015/16 campaign in Turin on loan, netting five times in 40 games for Juve.

The report suggests that Barcelona are ready to pay up to £18m to lure the Colombian away from Stamford Bridge in the future, although boss Luis Enrique likely to use him as an attacking full-back, rather than a forward.

Since joining The Blues from fellow Italian outfit Fiorentina in February 2015, Cuadrado has only made 15 first-team appearances for Chelsea, providing one assist.
