AC Milan and Barcelona tracking Hernanes, says agent

The Brazilian midfielder's representative underlined that his client is keen to remain at the Biancocelesti, but noted that the player is being followed by a number of clubs
AC Milan and Barcelona are amongst the clubs interested in Lazio midfielder Hernanes, the player's agent has claimed.

The 27-year-old midfielder has been strongly linked with football away from Stadio Olimpico after impressing for the Italian capital club following a €13.5 million transfer from Sao Paulo in 2010.

Hernanes' representative insisted that his charge's wish is to remain at Lazio, but admitted that there is a lot of demand for the player, including from the Rossoneri and the Catalan giants.

"Right now I am in Brazil, but in August I will travel to Rome," Joseph Lee told "I will speak again with president Claudio Lotito.

"I have received many phone calls from people who want to ask for information about my client. I have not yet received any offer from a big club, but many phone calls from agents.

"I have heard that Barcelona and AC Milan are interested, but there has been no offer from them.

"Hernanes has a contract with Lazio and he has frequently said that he wants to stay in Rome. His name, however, is circulating amongst many agents."
