Liverpool have reportedly completed their first January transfer window signing after agreeing terms with Hamburg to sign attacker Eljero Elia for £12.9m. Roy Hodgson and Anfield Director of Football have been firming up moves to beef up the club’s decidedly average squad and the 23 year old winger will look to give the Merseyside club more natural width.
Elia is in his second season in the Bundesliga after making the move to Hamburg from FC Twente in July 2009 and the Dutch international can ply his trade in a number of forward positions but he is most often used on the left wing where his pace and directness could well suit the fast paced Premier League game.
Roy Hodgson had stated in recent weeks that he hoped to bring in five or six players during January as he looks to push Liverpool back up the table after a very poor first half of the season has left the club some way short of the top four finish they had hoped for.
Sources in Germany state that a deal has been agreed and that Eljero Elia is already on his way to Liverpool to undergo a medical.
