Edy Reja has insisted that Hernanes will not leave Lazio before the transfer window shuts at the end of the week.
The deadline from January transfers is Friday, and the Brazilian playmaker has been linked with a move away from Stadio Olimpico – Inter are the latest club rumoured to be keen on his services.
However, ahead of their Coppa Italia match with Napoli, the Biancocelesti Coach has claimed that his playmaker is going nowhere.
“Hernanes? I can guarantee you he isn’t moving,” Reja said, before moving on to targets he’d like to bring in and the injury crisis his squad is going through.
“[Helder] Postiga is a guy we’ve been following for a while. He’s a striker with international experience and has scored goals wherever he’s been.
“Klose is down with a virus that has attacked his whole family, so we only have Floccari and a few other alternatives up front.
“In midfield we have Ledesma and Onazi available, but we’ll have to wait to see if Biglia can make it.
“It’s going to be a tough game, but we have a 50 per cent chance of winning.”
