Manchester United, Tottenham and Everton are reportedly on high alert after Barcelona made midfielder Alex Song available on a free loan deal for interested clubs.

According to the Telegraph, the three Premier League clubs will be interested in signing the midfielder, after the Cameroon midfielder was left out of the squad for the friendly against Club Leon on Monday.

Song is said to prefer a return to the Premier League, amid interest from Turkish giants Fenerbahçe and a few Italian clubs.

United have been linked to various midfielders this summer, but Arturo Vidal's name has been frequently mentioned, with reports suggesting a move is imminent. But if the move fails to go through at the last minute, Louis van Gaal could turn to the former Arsenal midfielder.

With Michael Carrick facing a long spell on the side lines, Song would be an able backup for the likes for Spaniard Ander Herrera and Belgian Marouane Fellaini.

Going for a Song

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is also a targeting a holding midfielder and will turn to Song, if he fails in a move for primary target Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton.

Apart from Spurs and United, Everton are also said to be keen on the midfielder. The Toffees are late entrants into this race, only joining because of the serious injury suffered by star midfielder Ross Barkley, who is looking at almost five months on the sidelines.

The 26 year-old Cameroonian midfielder will not be short of suitors in England, as he was one of the top performers for Arsenal in his final season with the club before his move to Barcelona. He racked up 14 assists that season, most of which resulted in goals for current United striker Robin van Persie.

The report also claims that, Barcelona are willing to move Song on permanently and have set an £8m price tag, but their offer of a free loan seems to be more enticing to interested clubs.
