Barcelona midfielder Alex Song is wanted by Chelsea but the Cameroonian international reportedly doesn't fancy playing under Jose Mourinho.
That's according to Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo, who report that rather than Chelsea it looks like Song could return to West Ham, where he spent last season on loan.
He has one year left on his Barcelona contract and is believed to favour a return to the Premier League with little hope of establishing himself at the Nou Camp.

As well as interested clubs in London, Song will also have suitors in Italy where Inter Milan are reportedly monitoring developments.
Song is a good friend of Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas from their days at Arsenal and the Stamford Bridge club were believed to be keen on snapping up Song on the cheap, possibly even for free, as Luis Enrique has no need for him in Barcelona.
However, Barcelona are looking for something in the region of €7m according to Spanish media.
Chelsea have plenty of options in midfield with Fabregas and Nemanja Matic the starters under Mourinho.
But the Chelsea boss is reportedly eager to supplement his squad and may have looked at Song as a potential replacement for John Obi Mikel.
The Nigerian international has battled knee problems and has been linked with a move away from Chelsea this summer.
