Former Juventus director general Luciano Moggi has warned the Old Lady of making a move for Lazio midfielder Hernanes.
The Brazilian international has been paired with the Turin giants in recent weeks, but the ex-transfer guru is not convinced.
“Hernanes is not worth €30m,” Moggi said in an interview with Radio Mana Mana Sport on Wednesday afternoon.
“He still has to prove himself. Sometimes he does good things, but then the light goes out and you don’t see him.
“He’s too inconsistent.”
Some reports were claiming that Juve could tempt Lazio into releasing him by offering cash, as well as the services of Milos Krasic and Fabio Quagliarella.
“That seems to be fantasy,” Moggi continued. “If there was any truth in that then Juventus would be crazy…”
Moggi left Juventus in the summer of 2006, just before he was banned from the game for his involvement in Calciopoli.
Hernanes, 26, has scored eight goals in 27 League games so far this season.
