Growing speculation across the sporting media suggests Barcelona’s longing for Arsenal CM Alexandre Song, with multiple quotes from the Spaniards, most notably the very vocal Gerard Pique, here is what he had to say to El Mundo Deportivo.
“I have followed his career and he has become a very good player,”
“He is physically very strong and is good with the ball at his feet.
“We are open to his arrival,” he continued. “If he comes, and from what I have read he could do, we would love to have him.”
Pique is just one of many Barcelona players that have made their apparent admiration for the player public, and is an all too familiar tactic used by Barcelona, with the very public tapping up of Cesc Fabregas still fresh in the mind!
Barcelona are keen to offload youngster Cristian Tello as a sweetner in the deal. Wenger is yet to comment on the speculation but with Song under a long term contract the ball is firmly in his court!
