Juventus rekindle interest in Eljero Elia
Juventus have reignited their interest in Hamburger winger Eljero Elia, according to Tuttosport.
The Bianconeri have expressed interest in the Netherlands international last summer, but failed to agree a transfer fee with HSV chiefs.
However, they could now return for the talented winger as boss Antonio Conte looks to add more quality to wing positions.
The Old Lady were thought to be closing in on Michel Bastos, but after that transfer proved to be very difficult to complete, they are likely to turn their attention to Elia.
Hamburger are reportedly prepared to sell the winger for €10 million, which is well within Juventus’ transfer budget.
The Dutch forward has amassed 58 appearances for Hamburg since arriving from Twente in 2009, scoring nine goals in the process.
