Hernanes: Lazio midfielder has dismissed talk of a summer move after being linked with other clubs
Hernanes has dismissed rumours linking him with a summer move away from Lazio by insisting he will be at Stadio Olimpico next season.
The Brazilian midfielder's impressive campaign has prompted speculation that he is a target for the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Anzhi Makhachkala.
However, the 26-year-old's agent claimed earlier this month that no deal is in the pipeline and Hernanes has also pledged his future to Lazio.
Speaking to Corriere dello Sport, Hernanes said: "I don't have any plans to move. I have also heard those rumours but there is no truth in what is being said.
"I am leaving for Brazil for 15 days and then I will return to Rome to begin pre-season training with Lazio."
Hernanes joined Lazio from Sao Paulo for £11.2million two years ago and has been a pivotal player for the Biancoceleste since then.
He scored eight goals in 31 league appearances for Lazio in the 2011/12 season and is under contract with the capital club until June 2015.
