Werder Bremen defender Naldo believes that Eljero Elia would be a great signing for the club if he were to complete a move from Juventus in the summer transfer window.
The 25-year-old was hailed as the man to end the Old Lady's wing woes last season after arriving from Hamburg, but he endured a torrid 2011-12 campaign making just four appearances under Antonio Conte for the eventual Serie A winners.
Having been deemed surplus to requirements, he has been linked with a host of clubs - including Bremen, who are keen to replace new Chelsea signing Marko Marin - and the Brazilian stopper admitted he would be delighted to see such a "great player" become his team-mate.
"If Elia joins from Juventus, that would be great," Naldo told Bild.
"I played against him when he was at Hamburg. He is a great player who can help us. I would be happy if the transfer went through."
A move may be in the pipelines if Kicker is to be believed. The publication claims Elia was in Bremen this week to negotiate a possible switch, having recently seen a transfer request granted by the Bianconeri.
However, Juventus are reportedly demanding €7 million for the services of the Netherlands international, while the Bundesliga outfit are only prepared to sanction a loan deal.
