Hamburg are keen to keep hold of Dutch winger Eljero Elia.

The speedy winger was the subject of a recent bid from Juventus, but the Italians’ offer was refused by the Bundesliga side.

And as Sporting Director Frank Arnesen confirmed, selling the highly rated 24-year-old is not something Hamburg wish to consider.

"We don’t want to give Eljero Elia up", said Arnesen.

"We have no need to sell him.

"He is a very important player for us."
