Chelsea among clubs eyeing move for ex-Arsenal midfielder

SongChelsea and Manchester City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern surprisingly have something in common after the Daily Mail revealed that both clubs were considering a move for Barcelona midfielder Alex Song.

The former Arsenal and current Barcelona midfielder is now classed as a homegrown player, after joining Arsenal when he was 17, which makes him a prized asset to the Premier League.

He is only on loan from the Catalan giants and Barca will be willing to sell the Ivorian in the summer for £6m.

This would be a bargain for either City or the Blues because a player of his ability would cost more than double his price.

City are looking for the right candidate to replace Yaya Toure as it is expected he will depart the Etihad to join his former coach Roberto Mancini at Inter Milan.

Whilst Chelsea are looking for depth in their midfield, after their form dropped when Nemanja Matic was unavailable at times this season.
