Tottenham set sights on Barcelona fringe man

Former Arsenal midfielder Alex SongTottenham have been linked with a summer move for Barcelona’s former Arsenal midfielder Alex Song.

Song joined Barcelona in a £15million deal from Arsenal last summer but he has struggled to secure regular football at Camp Nou and is believed to be keen on a switch back to the Premier League.

The Cameroon international has made only 15 starts this season, with some of those out of position at centre-back.

The Sunday People have reported that Spurs are considering a move for Song, although any deal could depend on whether or not the club qualify for next season’s Champions League.

It has been suggested that Barcelona will seek to recoup the £15million fee they paid for Song last summer and it remains to be seen if Spurs will step up their interest and make an offer when the transfer window re-opens.

There is no buy-back clause for Arsenal in his contract, and Arsene Wenger has come out publicly against a move.

“My personal advice for him would be to give it another go and after two seasons he can still make a decision,” he said.

Tottenham have struggled to field a defensive midfielder at times this season after a season ending injury to Sandro, as well as previous injuries to the likes of Scott Parker.
