It has been reported that former West London outfit Chelsea player Juan Cuadrado could be on his way back to the English Premier League to be with another London side West Ham in the coming season.

The former Blues winger is currently with the Italian Serie A champions Juventus and he could part ways with the club with a sum of £15 million as he has not contributed much to the team.

There are no indications that Chelsea will seek for him a return to the Stamford Bridge as he has not impressed the way he was expected to and that is a major reason why Juventus will seek to have him out of the club at the end of the season.

Juan Cuadrado is, however, in the wish list of a number of top sides including Watford, Sevilla, and Valencia which means he has got a number of options to solve the issues of his lack of playing time.

However, West Ham United are therefore keen on the signature of the star player and from all indications, he will not waste any time in giving his nod to the move as soon as an offer gets on the table for him.
