Cuadrado could make Premier League return

Arsene Wenger looks to strengthen his squad with one or two new additions in January.

Although he lasted just six months at Stamford Bridge before being shipped out on loan to Juventus in 2015, Cuadrado has played an important role in two double-winning campaigns with the Italian champions. Arsenal’s interest in the Colombian suggests they have given up their pursuit of summer target Thomas Lemar, reports The Sun, despite agreeing a €92 million fee for the midfielder on deadline day.

It had been reported that the Gunners will resurrect their bid for the Monaco man in January, but Wenger now appears to be assessing other options with Cuadrado a possible alternative.
