Liverpool close to signing Alex Song

Published 2 Comments

Liverpool are closing in on the signing of Barcelona midfielder Alex Song, according to The Metro.

The former Arsenal man, who has struggled for opportunities in La Liga in recent time, now looks set to return to England's elite division. Citing reports from Catalan newspaper Sport, it appears that the Merseyside outfit are just hours away from landing the midfielder after making a bid for his services.

It appears, then, that Liverpool are set to beat a number of clubs for the Cameroon international's signature, with the same report suggesting that Galatasaray have also made a bid. A number of Liverpool's Premier League rivals have also been linked with the ex-Gunners ace, with the likes of Manchester United credited with interest in his signature.

It's no surprise that the likes of Liverpool and United are in for the Barcelona man, as he's a proven Premier League player. Brendan Rodgers' side are set to embark upon a Champions League season, and will be hoping to have a strong squad full of options for the 2014/15 campaign. 

Manchester United, on the other hand, are in need of midfield improvement as they look to get over a disastrous season under David Moyes. 

Opening fixture 

Both Manchester United and Liverpool are set to get their Premier League seasons under way this weekend. The Red Devils will take on Swansea City this lunch time, whilst Liverpool will play host to Southampton tomorrow afternoon. 

The two rivals will be desperate to land the title in this campaign, and one of them could yet have Song on board for the season. It appears, though, that Liverpool are very much in the driving seat.
