Juve to complete Elia move?

Juventus could complete the signing of Dutch international Eljero Elia from Hamburg on Monday.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport and Tuttosport, the winger is expected to fly in to Turin to have his medical and sign the contract.

His price-tag is thought to be around €10m, but there is competition from Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Hamburger SV Coach Michael Oenning has confirmed Elia is set to leave the club.

“He has trained well, but then he has played poorly. He needs help. Therefore I need to talk with him,” Oenning told the Hamburger Morgenpost.

“There seems to be an interest there. We will see what they're doing.”

Juventus did have a bid in place for Diego Perotti, but it is reported Sevilla turned down the €14m offer.

Diego Lugano was another target for the Bianconeri, but he has officially joined Paris Saint-Germain.
