Roma are considering a summer move for Arsenal midfielder Alex Song, it has been claimed.

According to talkSPORT, Roma's new owner Thomas DiBenedetto is keen to add Song to his squad as he looks to make his mark on Stadio Olimpico, and the Cameroon international could be the subject of a €15 million (£13.5 million) bid.

Reports in Italy have also suggested that the Serie A club have sent scouts to Arsenal to watch Song in action and have identified him as transfer window priority.

The 23-year-old joined Arsenal in 2004 from French club Bastia and has been nurtured by Arsene Wenger into one of the Gunners' most consistent performers.


His importance to the Arsenal cause is highlighted by the fact he has started 34 games this season and Wenger is unlikely to be willing to let him leave the Emirates Stadium.

However, should the Arsenal boss lose the Douala-born man, he is reportedly lining up Rennes star Yann M'Vila as a potential replacement.
