Arsenal fans inside the Football Transfer Tavern are interested to hear reports from Jamie Sanderson of Metro that former midfielder Alex Song is eyeing a return to the club.
According to his cousin and former Liverpool defender Rigobert, Song has grown frustrated with life as a Barcelona substitute and would relish an opportunity to return to the Premier League.
Song only made the switch to the Camp Nou last season for a £17 million fee, but has managed just 15 appearances for the Catalan giants.
Amid speculation of a summer move away, his cousin Rigobert Song has spoken of the players current unhappiness.
“Barcelona put so much effort into signing him last summer, and Alex turned down many great teams in order to sign with them,” he said.
“But this season he has only been a substitute. He is not happy.
“At Arsenal he was a leader on and off the field – he doesn’t feel like this in Spain and it makes him feel bad.”
Manchester City and Inter Milan have both been linked with a move for Song in recent months, although it is thought the player would only make a return to England if it was with the Gunners.
His miserable time in Barcelona was summed up recently when he was named ‘flop of the season’ by a Catalan newspaper.
Is Song really set for a return to the Emirates Stadium in the summer? Rate this rumour below.
