Barcelona are weighing up a surprise offer for Chelsea outcast Juan Cuadrado to bolster their options at right back and wing back, according to Goal.
The Blaugrana have struggled to fill the void left by Dani Alves after his summer move to Juventus, with Sergi Roberto playing out of position for the Catalan giants.

Cuadrado moved from Fiorentina to Chelsea in January 2015 but was not afforded an opportunity to play regularly at Stamford Bridge.
Antonio Conte has loaned the Colombia international out to Juventus, where the able wideman has been starring for the Italian champions.
The report suggests that Barcelona had considered a move for Cuadrado back in his Fiorentina days and will revisit their interest when the transfer window reopens in January.
Chelsea’s switch to 3-4-3 would suit the South American should he return to West London but an opportunity to play in the Premier League again seems unlikely for the diminutive wideman.
