Juventus GM Marotta pushing to land Sao Paulo defender Rhodolfo, Hamburg winger Elia

Juventus GM Beppe Marotta will spend today in negotiations with Sao Paulo for defender Rhodolfo.

La Stampa says Marotta is expecting a busy few final days of the summer market and along with the Brazilian centre-half, he also is chasing Hamburg winger Eljero Elia.

Marotta remains keen to find buyers for strikers Vincenzo Iaquinta and Amauri before Wednesday's deadline.

Rhodolfo is likely to move to Juve for €10 million, though Sao Paulo are demanding more as some compensation is due his former club, Atletico Paranaense.

Juve coach Antonio Conte wants Elia signed, but Hamburg have raised their price to €11 million, which is deemed too steep by Marotta. The communication lines, however, remain open.
