Barcelona will allow Song to leave during summer transfer window

Former Arsenal midfielder Alex Song could leave Barcelona this month.


Barcelona have opened the door for Alex Song to make a move away from the club before the summer transfer window closes.

The Cameroon international has fallen out of favour at the Nou Camp under new coach Luis Enrique.

A return to the Premier League has been mooted for a man who represented Arsenal for six years prior to heading for Catalunya.

Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a loan approach, and Barca have admitted that they are prepared to speak with interested parties.

Sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta said: "We will see if we can find a way out in the remaining days of the market."

Barcelona have also taken the opportunity to point out that Luis Suarez was their top target this summer after agreeing to part with Alexis Sanchez.

Zubizarreta added: "He can play from both sides of the attack and is used to the high demands and pressures.

"[He was] the first choice. So we set out to see what his situation was."
