The Italian press are convinced that Juan Cuadrado is on his way to the Premier League but how good are his statistics this season?

Juan Cuadrado looks likely to leave Fiorentina in the summer and Manchester United and Arsenal are said to be ready to enter a bidding war.

The Colombian midfielder's stock has risen dramatically this season and Calciomercato.com is convinced that he will be playing in the Premier League next year despite interest from Juventus.

At present Fiorentina share the rights to Cuadrado with Udinese, but the two clubs are working on an arrangement that will allow the Viola to buy the remaining share and potentially sell him at a profit.

Cuadrado was the star of the show as Fiorentina beat Hellas Verona 5-3 last weekend, scoring one, setting up another and coming close on two other occasions.

But is the 25-year-old winger worth the fuss? Calciomercato.com has published a breakdown of Cuadrado's season so far in statistics.

Juan Cuadrado's 2013-14 campaign:

Games Played: 27 (26 from start)

Minutes Played: 2,256

Goals: 7

Shots: 58

Shots On Target: 19

Minutes Per Goal: 322.29

Goals from Inside the Area: 5

Goals from Outside the Area: 2

Pass Completion Percentage: 85%

Passes per 90 Minutes: 43.01

Total Crosses: 67

Successful Cross Percentage: 22%

Fouls Committed: 31

Fouls Suffered: 92

50-50 Balls Won: 53.6%

Aerial Challenges Won: 30.6%

While Cuadrado's attacking prowess is clear, the physical side of the game could prove to be a problem in the Premier League.

Playing at Fiorentina, Cuadrado is allowed a lot of time to make decisions, which he unlikely to get in England and he may also be expected to fight harder to win back the ball.

However, Cuadrado's touch and vision should allow him to adapt and the stats do explain why top clubs across Europe are said to be on his trail.

In addition to Manchester United and Arsenal, Bayern Munich are reportedly tracking Cuadrado and Fiorentina will be hoping for a bidding war to send his value through the roof.

Is Cuadrado the answer to Man United's midfield problem?
