With Andre Schurrle’s move away from Stamford Bridge edging ever closer, the Blues have already lined up their replacement in Colombian winger, Juan Cuadrado.

The Serie A club have been waiting for Chelsea to match Cuadrado’s release clause of £26.8m, although any deal is expected to be for less, with Mohamed Salah joining Fiorentina on loan.

Cuadrado is seen as a replacement for Andre Schurrle, who has agreed personal terms with German side, Wolfsburg. The funds from the Schurrle deal will immediately be used to help fund the deal for Cuadrado.

A player who excites, the Colombian is pacey and skilful, characteristics that will only add to the devastating attack that Jose Mourinho is building at Stamford Bridge.

The question is, when will the deal go through?
