That leaves Bayern Munich as the likeliest candidate.

However, as per The Independent, Arsenal - whose fundamental position is to persuade Sanchez to sign a new deal - will not sell to a Premiership rival.

Both clubs have reason to eye a move for Cuadrado, with Arsenal on the lookout for an alternative option to Alexis Sanchez, whose future still remains in doubt with Manchester City a mooted destination.

Concerns were initially raised over Sanchez's contract situation last summer when Arsenal failed to tie arguably their most important player to new terms despite long-term talks, per the Times' Matt Hughes.

Were Sanchez to leave, Xhaka, who signed for Arsenal from Borussia Monchengladbach, believes he could easily fit in at the Allianz Arena.

But after he fell, Sri Lanka lost eight wickets for 98 runs to be bowled out for 203, with leg-spinner Imran Tahir taking 4-27. The Sri Lankas were ruled to be four overs short of their target after time allowances were taken into consideration.

Hence, Arsene Wenger has identified the former Fiorentina standout as the ideal addition to his squad ahead of the 2017/18 campaign, with the futures of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil becoming increasingly unknown. "I owe a lot to him, he helped me a lot in the beginning".

Sanchez scored 30 goals in all competitions for Arsenal last season as they won the FA Cup and finished fifth in the Premier League.

He left Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2015 and has since established himself as a key part of Juve's success in recent seasons. "I have been able to play with many great players, but these two stick out".

Asked whether Ozil, in a similar contractual situation to Sanchez, would stay, Xhaka added: "I think so".
