Eljero Elia to stay in Hamburg.

HSV sports director,Frank Arnesen, has confirmed in a statement that Eljero Elia will not be sold.”We do not want to release Eljero Elia and we are not in an emergency to sell him.”

Hamburg said Juventus Turin officially requested for his services on Tuesday. According to “Gazzetta dello Sport”, Juventus offered 8 million euros for the Hollander.

Elia who came from Twente Eschede in 2009 has not been impressive of late. I wonder what must have occurred for his dip in form.

Arnesen believes Elia is an important player for the team. I hope Elia can prove his worth often by scoring decisive goals or assists for the team soon.
