The 31-year-old winger has only made eight appearances for the Turkish side and appears to have fallen further down the pecking order after the signing of Robinho.
RTL is reporting that Udinese are seriously interested in Elia and have made an official bid to bring him back to Italy, where he spent a year at Juventus in 2011.
The former Twente, Werder Bremen, Southampton and Feyenoord winger has been with Istanbul Basaksehir since 2017. He has made 41 appearances for the club, scoring eight goals.
