Arsenal are reported to have ended their pursuit of Juventus' versatile attacker Juan Cuadrado. The Colombia international was deemed as a potential target for the Gunners in the summer, although a deal never materialised.



Cuadrado had spent the previous two seasons on loan with Juventus from Chelsea, and the Old Lady made the move permanent for £17.6m in May.

Despite this, the attacker has continued to be linked with a move elsewhere with Beppe Marotta previously hinting that the winger could be sold for an instant profit.

According to Calciomercato, the Gunners have dropped their interest in the 29-year-old for the foreseeable future, and they could look at other options to bolster their attack.

Cuadrado has been a regular for Max Allegri since the start of the campaign, and he has notched a solitary goal in seven appearances across all competitions.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have made a decent start to the 2017/18 league season, and they are nine points adrift of leaders Manchester United with a game in hand.
