Alex Song

Barcelona midfielder Alex Song has refused to rule out a move back to his former club Arsenal in the future.

Song transferred to Barcelona in 2012 but the move has not materialised as expected for the Cameroonian, having spent most of last season on the bench. Under new manager Tata Martino, the former Arsenal man has had more joy, starting five games thus far in the league and four substitute appearances in all competitions. Song was part of the Gunners team who beat all odds to win third position ahead of Tottenham in 2011/12 having made their worst start to a season under Arsene Wenger.

Song scored one goal and assisted 11 in his final season in the Premier League, with Robin van Persie the biggest beneficiary of his form. The player still has happy memories of his time at the Emirates where he evolved as a player but insists that he is settled in Spain and would like to see out his contract with the Catalans. However, should an opportunity present itself, he will not resist a move back to his former club.

"I was very happy to be at Arsenal, I spent seven years there. But at the moment I'm not looking that way. I am very happy here. I have four years left on my contact. I don't know what will happen in four years' time when I finish here. But today I am very happy here," he told BBC Sport.

The Gunners are currently top of the Premier League and Song reveals that he would love them to win something this season. However, he is wary of the amount of injuries to key players and believes that the same can be a major stumbling block in their way to winning the title.

"When I left Arsenal two years ago I know they had very good players and every season there was just one thing missing," he explained.

"I think this year with the players that have come in, I think they have started very well. They are strong in the league and I've watched every game.

"I hope this season they will do very well, hopefully they don't get any players injured because when key players are injured it becomes very difficult for them.

"But this season hopefully, they will win the league, for me I would love to see them win something," he concluded.
