Liverpool will look to seal a permanent deal for Barcelona midfielder Alex song in the summer, according to the Daily Star.

The Cameroonian joined Barcelona in 2012 but failed to establish himself as a first team regular, and has now been shipped back to the Premier League on a loan deal with West Ham.

Although the Hammers may wish to sign him permanently at the end of the season it looks as though they may face renewed competition from Liverpool, who are said to be interested in Song once more.

Reports over the summer suggested that he was a target for Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers but the deal never happened and he ended up in east London instead.The Star say that Liverpool will reignite their interest and look to get him on a permanent basis at the end of the season.


Song spent two seasons with Barcelona following his £15m transfer from Arsenal two years ago, but started just 29 league games in that time, scoring just once. The Spanish giants were keen to ship him off before the start of the current campaign but it seems they couldn't find a buyer.

That opened up the possibility of a loan move which West Ham exploited - but there is likely to be something of a scrap for his services at the end of the season.


Before then however Liverpool will be focussed on securing a top four finish once more and go as far as they can in the Champions League. After falling just short in the Premier League last term they have had a slow start to the new campaign, and are currently down in 9th place with 10 points from seven games.

They were dealt a major setback after it was confirmed that Dejan Lovren had pulled out of Croatia's team for their upcoming Euro 2016 qualifiers with an abdominal injury that could keep him out of action for some time.
