Hernanes snuffs out rumours of a move to north London.
However, Lazio’s club president Claudio Lotito this week confirmed that he is to open talks over a new contract for the 28-year-old, who joined the club for £9 million in 2010.
Ligue 1 champions PSG are also interested in Hernanes’s signature, but on Monday the player spoke out and confirmed that he is keen to stay in Italy.
“This is not the time to talk about the market,” he said. “I am good at Lazio. It’s true that in football there are often changes, but now is not the time to think about that.”
Hernanes has scored 37 goals in 132 appearances for Lazio this season.
