From Arsenal, to Barcelona, to Tottenham?

Manuel Queimadelos Alonso

Alex Song could be on his way to White Hart Lane. According to Sport, Song is on the way out of Barcelona and he will land at either Tottenham Hotspur or Manchester United.

Song has been a massive disappointment at Barcelona, but that's not much of a surprise. The Catalans play with a single holding midfielder, which Song can't play as. Asking Song to play there, or in central defense, is a recipe for disaster.

Where Song can shine is in a two-man pivot, which is where Song would likely be asked to play at Spurs. Whether it is with Sandro in a more defensive setup, with Paulinho or with Moussa Dembele, Song could regain his form and play a vital role for the club.

Barcelona bought Song for £15 million, but considering his struggles at the Camp Nou, it's tough to imagine him going for near that price now. More likely, he would be roughly a £10 million transfer, which is a good price for a player of his quality. Plus, it would really piss off Arsenal.
