Arsenal are interested in bringing Hamburg winger Eljero Elia to the Emirates Stadium before the end of the transfer window, it has been claimed.

According to, the north London club have made an enquiry for the 24-year-old as they look to sign forward reinforcements prior to next week's transfer deadline.

Arsene Wenger is said to have identified the Holland international as a potential acquisition following the departures for Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri.

The loss of the midfield duo has left Arsenal short on creative influences, and Elia would certainly provide the Gunners with added attacking flair and another goalscoring threat.


Elia has previously been linked with the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea, while Hamburg have rejected an offer for his services from Juventus.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are close to signing South Korea striker Park Chu-Young after an undisclosed fee was accepted by Monaco.

The 26-year-old forward is flying to London on Saturday in order to undergo a medical and complete his move to Arsenal.
