Lazio’s Brazilian playmaker Hernanes is a wanted man this summer, with Barcelona and Milan among the clubs interested in him, according to his agent.
The 27-year-old was linked earlier in the summer with a move out of the Aquile, but this was quickly denied by the player’s representative.
However, that same agent has revealed now that several clubs are monitoring his current situation in Rome.
“Right now I am in Brazil but I will be returning to Rome in August and I will speak again with President [Claudio] Lotito,” admitted Joseph Lee to Lalaziosiamonoi.it.
“I have received many phone calls and had many requests for information on my client. There has been no official offer from a major club, but I have had several agents call me in the market.
“I have heard of interest from Barcelona and also Milan, even if I’ve not received an offer.
“Hernanes has a contract with Lazio and has repeated several times that he wants to stay in Rome.
“His name, however, is circulating amongst many agents, who are all asking me for his details.”
