Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado insists he has yet to hear of any side making a formal offer for his services despite being heavily linked with a host of top clubs around Europe.

Cuadrado emerged from the World Cup as one of Colombia’s top performers, although he failed to impress during his side’s exit against hosts Brazil.

The 26-year-old has attracted interest from a number of suitors but Spanish giants Barcelona appear to be leading the way.

It has been claimed by a number of publications in Spain that Luis Enrique’s side are putting together a deal but they are yet to make any concrete approach for the Fiorentina man.

Cuadrado said: “I’m content and calm. Which league would I prefer to play in? I don’t have preferences; wherever I go, I will play my football.

“So far, there hasn’t been any real deal; for the most part, it’s just been rumours in the papers.

“I’m speaking with my agent and I’m in no rush to decide my future. We’ll see what happens.”

The Serie A club only acquired the remaining 50 per cent of Cuadrado’s ownership rights from Udinese last month but it has not silenced any talk of his imminent exit.

The Colombian is expected to command a fee in the region of 30million euros and is seen as someone who could step into the boots of the outgoing Alexis Sanchez, who is believed to be close to securing a move to Arsenal.
