Arsenal and Tottenham’s hopes of securing a January deal for Lazio’s Hernanes have been dealt a major blow, with the midfielder’s agent stating that his client is happy in Rome.

The Brazilian playmaker has been heavily linked with both Premier League sides over the course of the past few months, with rumours suggesting that he had grown unsettled with life at the club.

Arsenal were linked with a serious offer for the 28-year-old over the summer, while Spurs also monitored him during their £110m mega-spend during the last window.

With his contract set to expire at the end of next season, a switch away from the Stadio Olimpico this winter while his value is high has been mooted, but the South American’s agent, Joseph Lee, says that his client is happy at Lazio:

“The boy is having a great time in Rome and is happy at Lazio. He has a contract that he intends to comply with and therefore I see no problems.” He is quoted by talkSPORT.

“Sometimes there was interest, but nothing concrete. No-one has put forward any proposals for my client, who I repeat is happy to be at Lazio.”

Hernanes is believed to be valued at around £22m, and could still be the subject of bids next month.
