The Colombian has attracted interest from a number of European giants, following his impressive performances for Vincenzo Montella’s side this season. We had earlier reported that Manchester United were keen to land the 25 year old in the summer but it is now believed that Liverpool are set to offer Fiorentina £20m for the Colombian’s services.

The Colombian is an immensely versatile player who can play either as a right winger striker or a wing back. His dazzling dribbling ability and raw speed to attack with venom is an added bonus.

Cuadrado is certainly an upgrade to long term Liverpool target Yevhen Konoplyanka and the stats speak in his favour. With an average passing accuracy of 85%, he rarely gives the ball away and squanders possession for his side.

Taking advantage of his raw pace, Cuadrado likes to cut inside by twisting past defenders and has created 47 chances for Fiorentina this season. His attacking style of play will easiliy fit into Rodgers’ setup which needs tactical flexibility to flourish.

The 25 year old is co owned by Udinese and Fiorentina, but for twenty million pounds (24 million euro), both clubs could agree to sell. Should Liverpool win the Premier League title, Brendan Rodgers’ transfer targets are likely to feature players from the upper echelons of European Football in order to compete in the Champions League next season.

The South American wins most of his aerial duels which gives Liverpool an added option of using an outlet in wider areas of the pitch. Moreover, Latin Americans Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho have been a corner stone in Liverpool’s title charge this season and there is good reason to believe that Cuadrado will sizzle at Anfield.

    • It will be very difficult to buy more than 5 players due to financial stand we are in!

    • where is sterling,flanagan. vertonghen is crap..and i would sooner have jordan ibe than pedro

    • Are you an idiot? This isn’t fifa. Henderson. Skrtel, Sterling and Flanagan have been some of our best players this season!

      • I agree with you Ali. I love to see J Flanagan and J Ibe very much in the coming season. Let’s support BR to play them.

  2. Looks good but I’d still take konoplyanka as first choice. Best winger avail in the summer that will fit into the team is still konoplyanka.

    • Sell Agger and keep that useless numpty Johnson that shows how much you know about football buddy.

  3. first of all,i want start by saying thank you to the entire management crew of Liverpool football club for making us a proud fans out there and gradually turning my dreams to a reality .secondly I think it will be necessary if we carefully select plays base on quality and not on sentiment. though he’s a fantastic play with lots of potentials. I wish all Liverpool play,fans and well wishers success as we Battle ahead for the Epl trophy.

  4. Du we get any extra money from the Champions league qualification? If so, how much?

  5. It ‘ll be a good signing if he will blend with the team in a short period to help us in the UEFA League if not, I don’t see him as the best option now.

  6. Brendan knows who is best for lfc…even if u bring a food vendor brendan can turn him to a superstar! Redordead!! Ynwa!!!

  7. He’s a Lil Ronaldinho in the making! Sign him and smoke the EPL defenses. S.A.S.S.C!
