Hernanes has hailed the capture by Lazio of former Bayern Munich striker Miroslav Klose.

The Brazilian midfielder is impressed with his club's strategy on the transfer market so far, which includes taking Klose on a free transfer once his Bayern Munich contract expired.

"Klose is such a great signing!" Hernanes told Globoesporte in Brazil.

"He is a very talented player, had great success in every club he played in and especially at international level for Germany.

"His contribution will be crucial this season."
