Arsenal midfielder Alex Song has insisted he is happy in north London despite reports linking him with a move to Barcelona.

The Cameroon international still has two years to run on his existing Emirates Stadium contract, but is rumoured to be attracting admiring glances from the Spanish giants.

Tito Vilanova, who took over from Pep Guardiola at Camp Nou earlier this summer, is ready to pay €15million to secure Song's signature, and could face further competition from big-spending Russian outfit Zenit St Petersburg.

"I am not going to lie if I said there is no interest but I am at Arsenal and I am happy at Arsenal," the African told Sky Sports.

"Barcelona are the best team in the world, and speculation will always continue until the window closes."

Song joined Arsenal from Bastia in 2005, and has established himself as one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League.

Arsene Wenger will be determined to hang on to a player he's nurtured for the past seven seasons, as the club looks to mount a renewed title challenge next year.
