Alex Song has admitted that he would be interested in a move to Spanish giants Barcelona, but insists he is happy to remain at Arsenal.

The central midfielder has been heavily linked with Barcelona in recent weeks and it seems as though he would not be averse to playing for a side, considered by many, to be one of the best in the world.

"I am not going to lie if I said there is no interest but I am at Arsenal and I am happy at Arsenal," Song told Sky Sports.

"Barcelona are the best team in the world, and speculation will always continue until the window closes."

Sky Sports has reported that Barcelona are said to have already made an offer of €15million for the midfielder, while Russian side Zenit St. Petersburg are also believed to be interested in signing him.

Song was one of the outstanding performers for Arsenal last season as he managed to make double figures in assists in the league despite being considered by many as a defensive midfielder.

The Cameroon international has become an integral part of the first team in recent seasons and manager Arsene Wenger would certainly not want to lose another player who has made his name at the club.

Wenger signed Song from Bastia back in 2005 and has since nurtured him through the youth system to become one of the most highly rated midfielders in the Premier League.

Barcelona are seeking a suitable replacement for Seydou Keita who left the club earlier this summer and it has seemed as though Song is the man they have earmarked for this role.

New Barcelona boss Tito Vilanova is also hoping to strengthen his squad in order to try and overhaul bitter rivals Real Madrid who stormed to the La Liga title last season.
