Elia on his way to Juve

Juventus have agreed a deal with Hamburg over the capture of Eljero Elia, according to reports.

The Old Lady have been tracking the winger for over a year and it seems an agreement has finally been reached.

According to various Italian media on Tuesday, the Bianconeri will pay €9m for the Dutch international.

The Serie A side accepted such a demand from Hamburg after having a loan request rejected by the German club.

Although it's unclear whether personal terms have been agreed yet, it's understood that he's been offered a four-year deal worth €2m a season.

Elia is the third left midfielder whom the club have signed this season after the captures of Emanuele Giaccherini from Cesena and Paraguayan Marcelo Alejandro Estigarribia.
