Liverpool target Eljero Elia looks set to snub a move to Anfield in favour of joining Schalke, reports talkSPORT.

The 25-year-old Dutch international winger is a long-term target for the Premier League side, despite enduring a difficult campaign with Juventus after arriving in Turin in an £8million deal from Hamburg last summer.

Elia has made only four appearances for Antonio Conte's side this season, and is heavily expected to leave Italy in search of regular football.

Liverpool has been touted as a potential destination, but after the sacking of Kenny Dalglish, the English giants have been focusing all their attentions of the search for a new manager, meaning a number of prospective transfer targets have fallen by the wayside.

Now, according to Tuttojuve, Elia is set to return to Germany with Bundesliga outfit Schalke.

Juventus want to recoup the £7.5million paid for the player last August, but may struggle to attain such a fee for a player that has hardly featured in the past 12 months.
