Tottenham Hotspur are targeting a move to sign Alex Song after Barcelona reveal that he will not feature in their plans for the new season, Metro reports.
Mauricio Pochettino has been very active with his summer transfers, already reinforcing his squad with the additions of Ben Davies, Michel Vorm, Eric Dier, DeAndre Yedlin, and recently Federico Fazio.
However, with all of them being defensive signings, the Spurs boss is now aiming to add some extra depth into his midfield by adding the out-of-favour Barcelona star.
The 26-year-old spent seven years at Arsenal before a switch to the La Liga, where he found first team opportunities very hard to come by.
Now, the Cameroon international is being linked with a return to the English Premier League as the Gunners along with Manchester United set to rival Pochettino for his signature.
In addition to Song, the Argentine manager is also considering a move to bring Red Devils attacker Danny Welbeck to White Hart Lane after Louis van Gaal is said to have told the striker that he is free to leave.
