Agent reveals Elia bid
Juventus have made a bid for Hamburg winger Eljero Elia, the player's agent has confirmed.
Hamburg signed Netherlands international Elia, 24, from FC Twente in 2009 and he has since been linked with a number of top European clubs.
It was reported this week that Juventus, having completed the signing of Mirko Vucinic from Roma, have now turned their attentions to Elia, and his agent has now confirmed a formal offer has been lodged.
"Juventus have already made a bid, and in the last few days I have spoken to [Juve transfer consultant] Fabio Paratici," Frank Schouten told Itasportpress. "If an economical agreement can be found then Elia will be playing in Serie A."
Hamburg are thought to be willing to accept a bid of around €10 million for Elia.
