Alex Song has set his sights on a return to Arsenal after being told that he is free to leave Barcelona this summer, according to reports from the Sunday People.

The Cameroonian midfielder only left the Gunners in 2012 to switch to the reigning La Liga champions, but he has found playing time hard to come by in his two seasons at the Nou Camp.

With just one year left on his current contract, a summer sale looks likely with the Catalans not willing to offer him an extension after a torrid time at the club.

A return to the Premier League has been mooted for some time, and despite interest from Liverpool, Tottenham, Everton and Manchester United, an Arsenal comeback is the 26-year-old’s desired option.

Song cost Barcelona £15m, yet they are rumoured to be willing to take a £5m hit to get him off of their books as they set about a huge summer of transfer activity after seeing a FIFA ban suspended.

Arsene Wenger may well be keen on the deal, with speculation suggesting that he’s eyeing a replacement for veteran midfielder Mikel Arteta.

    We should be realistic in our thoughts on this matter. Every player in the world wants to win things and sometimes players have to make very difficult choices. Having the opportunity to play for a world class team like Barcelona and play alongside Messi, Neymatr, Savi, Inniesta etc is something loads of players will jump at. Apart from that Wenger also has blame for the loss of quite a few of our star players by not really planning well enough to win anything for so long. Fabregass, Van Persie, Cole, Nasri, Toure, Klishi, 6 top class players were allowed to leave because Wenger did not show any sin of seriously challenging for the title. Again he is about to lose one of the best right backs in Europe in Sagna over something that other clubs are willing to pay without fuss because they know is value. I would definitely have song back as well as Fabrigass
