Arsenal may well end up selling midfielder Alex Song to Barcelona but only if the price is right. Barcelona vice-president Josep Maria Bartomeu was in London yesterday to hold formal talks over the possible move but the two clubs are yet to agree on a fee.
Barcelona are looking to add a defensive midfielder in their ranks who can also play as a centre-back. They had initially targeted Athletic Bilbao’s Javi Martinez, who is now Munich bound, but have failed to trigger the player’s 40m Euro buy-out clause.
The 24-year-old Arsenal midfielder is liked for his versatile role that Barcelona need at the moment. However, the Catalan giants have tabled a valuation of £13m which seems way short of Arsenal’s demand.
The Gunners want at least £18-£20m for the Cameroon international who has three years remaining in his contract. The player himself is aware of the interest, as several Barcelona players have publicly spoken about him linking with the club, but is happy to stay at Arsenal.
