The Daily Express seem to think that Chelsea are targeting yet another Barcelona midfielder and we in the Football Transfer Tavern can’t help but notice he also used to play for Arsenal.
Less than a week after netting Cesc Fabregas, Chelsea and manager Jose Mourinho are now reportedly keen on luring Alex Song to Stamford Bridge.
Song is another player who left the Emirates Stadium for the Camp Nou – and did not make the mark he wanted.
Whilst Fabregas may not have been given the support and regular first team chances at Barcelona, there is no doubting that Song has been an out and out flop – and we think Jose Mourinho needs his head checking!
Mourinho is considering a £10 million bid for Cameroon international Song who could certainly leave the Camp Nou should the right bid come in for him.
However, the Blues boss may face competition from Manchester United for the former Bastia player.
Song would welcome a move back to England where he, according to our punters at the bar, played the best football of his career.
Chelsea fans. What do you think of Song? Should Mourinho swoop for yet another former Gunner? Let us know your thoughts below.
