West Ham are interested in signing Juventus winger Juan Cuadrado, according to reports in Italy.

The Hammers are not the only team keen on the Colombian, though, with Watford, Sevilla and Valencia all keeping tabs on the wide man.

Juve are said to be willing to offload Cuadrado but their priority would be to use him in a part-exchange offer to land Federico Chiesa from Fiorentina.

The former Chelsea star has had his injury problems, having been sidelined from mid-December to early April with a knee injury.

Cuadrado played just 21 games in all competitions last campaign, scoring one goal and providing three assists.

However, the 30-year-old could not be described as injury prone, having made 135 appearances for Juventus since moving on an initial loan deal from Chelsea in August 2015.

He generally plays as a right winger, although he did have a spell playing as a right-back and wingback at the start of last season.
