Lazio midfielder Hernanes has been mooted as being on the radar of defending Premier League champions Manchester City, but his agent has insisted his client will only consider a move when a bid arrives.
The 27-year-old Brazilian midfielder has been at the Italian club since 2010, clocking up 47 appearances in all competitions for Lazio this season. He is under contract at Lazio until 2015.
“We are talking about rumours, but if there is a bid, then Lazio president Claudio Lotito will call us”, the player’s agent, Joseph Lee, told La Lazio Siamo Noi.
“City are a top club, and Hernanes loves the Premier League, but my respect for Lazio is too big for me to say something”, Lee added.
A former Sao Paulo attacking midfielder, Hernanes has 12 goals in all competitions for Lazio this season.
He has also represented his national side ten times so far in his career, and has one goal to his name.
