Barcelona still haven't received an offer for midfielder Alex Song, despite the player having been made available by the club.

This has been reported by talkSPORT, who have suggested that there is a lack of interest in the Cameroon international. This has been suggested, despite recent reports suggesting that Premier League trio Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea were all interested in the player's services in this transfer window.

It now remains to be seen as to whether the elite clubs in the Premier League step up their interest in the midfielder, who has three years remaining on his current deal with the Spanish giants. 

The Catalans have already let a number of star names depart the club in this transfer window, with the likes of Victor Valdes, Cesc Fabregas, Alexis Sanchez and Bojan Krkic all having moved on. But, it appears that they're unable to force Song out of the club ahead of the 2014/15 campaign. 

Manchester United, who have been linked with the player, are certainly in need of midfield additions following last season's struggles. Under David Moyes in 2013/14, the United players failed to make an impression, with the likes of Marouane Fellaini, Darren Fletcher, Michael Carrick and Co. struggling to find form. 

United have, however, already completed the signing of Spanish ace Ander Herrera, and Red Devils fans will be hoping the club further add to that department before next month's Premier League kick-off. 

Chelsea, on the other hand, have also spent wisely this summer, and now have an array of talent in their midfield department. Having purchased Spanish international Cesc Fabregas, Mourinho also has the likes of Nemanja Matic, Ramires and Co. at his disposal.  

Arsenal return? 

Arsenal also have a number of options in the midfield department, with the likes of Jack Wilshere, Mathieu Flamini, Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta all plying their trade at the Emirates. 

The Gunners have already spent heavily in this transfer window, having completed deals to bring Alexis Sanchez, Mathieu Debuchy, David Ospina and Calum Chambers to the club. It's uncertain as to whether an Arsenal return would appeal to Song, but the player will surely be on the lookout for first team football in 2014/15. 

Arsenal fans: Do you want Song back at the Emirates? Have your say below!
