Despite Edy Reja’s insistence that Hernanes is not for sale, reports suggest that Atletico Madrid could move for the Lazio man.
The Brazilian playmaker has been heavily linked with a switch away from Stadio Olimpico during this transfer window, with Milan and Inter both said to be keen on his services.
However, Barcelona-based newspaper Mundo Deportivo claim that Diego Simeone’s men are the latest side tracking the trequartista.
With the Biancocelesti languishing in the middle of the Serie A table, a switch away from the capital looks like a possibility.
However, after Atleti signed Jose Sosa on loan from Metalist until the end of the season, it seems that a bid for Hernanes may have to wait until the summer, if at all.
The Vicente Calderon outfit are said to be willing to part with €15m for the Selecao international.
