Cuadrado keen on Fiorentina stay

Colombian full-back Juan Cuadrado is happy to remain at Fiorentina, his agent has suggested.

The 24-year-old is currently co-owned by Udinese and Viola, but he is attraction attention from elsewhere as well.

Cuadrado’s impressive showings at Artemio Franchi have seen his name linked with Europe’s high-profile clubs.

This means that the Colombian’s long-term future is in doubt, but the player’s representative says his client is happy to stay in Florence.

“He wants to continue wearing the Viola shirt,” agent Alessandro Lucci said to Radio Toscana. “He’s really happy in Florence, as is his family.

“He wants to keep playing in a top side like Fiorentina – an outfit that has all it needs to get back to the very highest level.

“They have some solid directors and an excellent Coach who is getting Juan to improve on all levels.”

Cuadrado arrived at Udinese from Colombian Medellin in 2009, but he struggled to break into the starting line-up at Friuli.

He then managed to kick-start his career during a loan spell at Lecce, before joining Fiorentina in a co-ownership agreement last summer.

Cuadrado has largely impressed at Artemio Franchi this season, scoring 1 goal and producing 4 assists in 24 Serie A appearances.

The Colombian international was mostly deployed as a right full-back in Vincenzo Montella’s 3-5-2 formation.
