A football agent claims the Italian trio are ready to challenge Sao Paulo's transfer mettle...

Inter, Milan and Juventus face a three-way fight for Sao Paulo midfielder Anderson Hernanes.

The 23-year-old has attracted heavy interest from a number of Serie A clubs, in particular the big three are all said to be monitoring his situation.

Hernanes has also been linked with Barcelona, but Italian agent Sabatino Durante, who is a specialist Brazilian transfer market expert, believes the Sao Paulo man will be heading to the peninsula.

"Hernanes is wanted by the big teams and he is surely liked in Italy by both Milan and Inter, but Juve also asked for information about him," the agent told Itasportpress.it.

"One of the main problems of a January arrival is that he doesn't have an EU passport, meaning it would be easier to find a deal in the summer.

"Barcelona did make an offer previously, but there was no will from the player of Sao Paulo."
