Juan Cuadrado: Linked with Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Arsenal

The 26-year-old has recently been linked with a move to Barcelona, while Bayern Munich and Arsenal are also thought to be interested in his services.

Cuadrado was co-owned by Firorentina and Udinese before the Viola bought his full sporting rights last month for a reported 15million euros.

"Cuadrado is a very strong player," Prade said to www.tuttomercatoweb.com. "The (Fiorentina owners) Della Valle family has done an enormous effort to buy the full sporting rights of the player.

"Now we will have to wait for him to return before we know where his future will be.

"We will do all that we can to convince him to remain but all will be decided when he returns (from holiday).

"For the time being we have not received any official offers for him."

Cuadrado joined Fiorentina two years ago from Udinese and has been a regular in Vincenzo Montella's side.

The South American scored 11 goals and set up five more in 32 league appearances for the Viola in the 2013-14 campaign.

He is under contract with the Florence-based outfit until June 2017.

Cuadrado recently competed at the World Cup in Brazil with Colombia.
