Hernanes has insisted that he is happy at Lazio amidst rumours that he’s stalling on negotiating a new contract.
“I’ve had no contact with Lazio about my contract,” the Brazilian international told the media in his homeland. “It expires in June 2015…
“The rumours about my future are news to me. I really didn’t know anything about these stories until today.”
Whispers were suggesting that the versatile midfielder was on the transfer radar of Italian giants Inter.
The former Sao Paulo player, 27, has scored six goals in 16 League games for the capital club so far this season.
Hernanes is thought to be earning €1.8m a season at the Stadio Olimpico.
