Roma reportedly decide to make an approach for Juventus wideman Juan Cuadrado after being priced out of a move for Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez.

Juventus midfielder Juan Cuadrado has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for Roma.

For a number of weeks, Roma have been attempting to push through a deal to sign Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez but as it stands, the Foxes are remaining firm over their valuation of the Algerian international.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, that has led to the Serie A side turning their attentions to Cuadrado, who has only recently completed a permanent switch to Turin from Chelsea.

It has been suggested that last season's top-flight runners-up feel that they will be able to sign Cuadrado for a fee in the region of £30m, which Leicester deem unacceptable for Mahrez.

In two loan spells with Juventus, Cuadrado has contributed eight goals in 85 appearances in all competitions.
