West Ham star eyeing move to Premier League rivals

West Ham United midfielder Alex Song is holding out for a big-money move to Liverpool or Manchester City in the summer, according to the Mail on Sunday.

The Cameroonian joined the Hammers on loan from Barcelona at the start of the season. Despite excelling for the London club in his early performances, Song’s form has dipped recently, coinciding with his side’s poor showings in which they have won only twice in all competitions since the turn of the new year.

However, this has not deterred the player himself, who is targeting a permanent move to a Premier League club capable of challenging for Champions League qualification.

West Ham are currently contributing to the majority of Song’s £140,000-a-week salary – the rest coming from current employers Barcelona – and this hefty wage may put off potential suitors looking to make a move for the midfielder.

Before joining the Catalan club, Song plied his trade for West Ham’s London rivals Arsenal.
