Inter join Barca in pursuit of Arsenal enforcer

Could Alex Song be set to leave the Emirates?

Arsene Wenger looks set to face a battle to keep hold of Alex Song, following news that Inter Milan have joined Barcelona in expressing an interest in the 24 year old midfielder. (talkSport)

Song moved to Arsenal in 2006 and has developed into an established member of the current Arsenal side.

However, with Barcelona and Inter Milan currently considering January moves Song may be tempted to leave the North London club in search of trophies, which have thus far eluded him in his time at Arsenal.

Inter Milan have struggled this season in Serie A, currently sitting in 17th after 9 games. However, Massimo Moratti is already looking to next season and is set to give boss Claudio Ranieri at transfer package looking at the next 18 months.

Song, at 24, would fit the bill perfectly and would add some much needed steel and energy to the Inter Milan midfield. An offer of over £20 million may be enough to tempt Arsene Wenger to part with one of his longest serving players.

Ranieri is also looking to target controversial Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli. The striker previously enjoyed a tumultuous spell in Italy at Inter, although a return is now a serious possibility following Ranieri’s interest.
