Hernanes: Lazio midfielder not being sold to AC Milan

The 27-year-old Brazilian playmaker has caught the eye of many of Europe's top clubs but Lazio have denied any reports linking him with a move away from Stadio Olimpico.

Responding to the news, Lazio president Claudio Lotito rubbished any suggestion of Hernanes joining Milan.

Lotito told Gazzetta dello Sport: "Milan have not asked us about Hernanes and the player is not on the market. We want to strengthen our team and not weaken it".

He also commented on coach Vladimir Petkovic's future, stating he will be staying at the club.

"He has a contract with Lazio and it's not an issue," added Lotito.

Lazio, who recently missed out on a Europa League place through the league after losing to Cagliari 1-0, will now be focusing their efforts on the Coppa Italia final against arch rivals Roma, which takes place this weekend.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
