After Lazio’s 2-1 Coppa Italia win over Parma on Tuesday, Coach Edy Reja confirmed that the club would enter the transfer market.
A Brayan Perea double secured the capital side’s place in the quarter-finals, but journalists were more interested in the comings-and-goings this month at Stadio Olimpico.
“Yes, the President has confirmed to me that he’s satisfied,” the tactician told Rai Sport.
“Therefore I think we’ll go into the market.
“Hernanes? The impression I have is that the lad is fine here. Of course, anything can happen and it’s normal that players look at other situations.
“But honestly, I think he’ll stay with us.”
Reja concluded by remarking on the news that Clarence Seedorf will take over at Milan.
“I feel sorry for Allegri after his sacking, but Seedorf is an intelligent man and a great communicator. I’m sure the Rossoneri will do fine.”
