Whilst the player is seen to be open to extending his contract, Lazio are believed ready to wait for offers to come in for playmaker Hernanes.
The Brazilian has been consistently linked with a move away from the Olimpico, with a number of parties said to have tracked him during his three-and-a-half years so far in the capital.
Il Messagero report today that whilst the 28-year-old has looked to commit once more to the Aquile in the form of opening contract renewal talks, the club are thinking otherwise.
On from last summer seen as valuating the midfielder at €25m, it is understood that President Claudio Lotito is ready to listen to offers from interested parties for a move this coming summer, and at a reduced valuation of between €16m and €18m.
Arsenal, Atletico Madrid, Inter and Milan are listed by Il Messagero as all ‘seriously considering’ moves for Hernanes, although Atleti’s lack of cash funds may make their attempts difficult.
Come the summer, Hernanes will have entered the final year of his current contract with Lazio.
