The agent of Hernanes says he's staying with Lazio.

The midfielder has been linked with a move away in recent days.

"In February I met with President Claudio Lotito," Joseph Lee declared. "Back then he told me that he doesn't want to sell Hernanes.

"A lot of people have expressed an interest in him, but that was only talk. No club has opened proper transfer negotiations for Hernanes.

"He will stay at Lazio."
