The Brazil international completed his €20 million move from Lazio on deadline day and is desperate to help the Nerazzurri return to their former glories
The Brazil international joined the Nerazzurri from Lazio on deadline day for a fee of around €20 million, ending a four-year spell in the capital.
And the 28-year-old has already set his sights on ending a three-year trophy drought at Inter, who are without a major title since claiming the Coppa Italia in 2011.
"I'm very happy to be here, to be part of Inter,” Hernanes told Sky Italia.
“I expect a challenge and I am ready. [My dream] is to do well, the image I have of Inter a team that has won everything and I hope to help them back to that level."
Former Inter star Nicola Berti immediately gave the Brazil international his backing, outlining the qualities the former Sao Paulo star possesses that will help him become a leader at San Siro.
“Hernanes has all the features and qualities to make a big difference, he can become the leader of this team,” Berti told Corriere dello Sport.
“From now on, the game will go through him.”
“I know that he is a very serious professional, someone who never misses a workout and will always works hard.
“Players like him are always useful in a dressing room. They can be an example, especially for the young players.”
Inter sit fifth in Serie A ahead of tomorrow’s clash with reigning champions Juventus.
