Hernanes said Inter are targeting “the top spots in Serie A and to go as far as possible in the Europa League.”
The midfielder spoke to Brazilian website Lancenet about his prospects.
“It is difficult to make predictions for Inter. What I can say is that our objective is to fight for the top spots in Serie A from the start to the end of the season.
“Serie A is a very tough League, but our objective is to finish among the top teams. We know that we have to work hard for that and battle to win as many games as we can.
“In the Europa League we want to go as far as possible. We’re taking it one game at a time, trying to win as many as possible.
“We know it is very important to have a balance between the younger and more experienced players, providing an important cohesion.”
Hernanes hasn’t been on his best form so far this season and lost his place in the Brazil squad too.
“The Seleçao is still in my plans. I am a young player and the best period of my career is still to come. My objective is to be called up again.”
