Barcelona transfer news: Midfielder has no bidders

Alex Song

In the latest Barcelona transfer news, ex Arsenal player Alex Song has no bidders but should Everton or Manchester United place an opportunistic bid?

Deemed surplus to requirements, Alex Song is available for purchase on the summer market yet, according to AS, Barcelona have not received any official offers for the midfielder.

Having previously flourished during the end of his stay at Arsenal, Song has much Premier League experience and was even linked with a possible move to either Everton or Manchester United.

The report said: "Barcelona bosses are worried about the lack of any real interest in Song despite some clubs having asked previously about the player."

It added: "Luis Enrique… has doubts about the midfielder. He doesn’t see him in defence, and his position in midfield is likely to be occupied, meaning his role in the team appears to be very limited."

There is no mention of player valuation but transfermarkt.co.uk regard the Cameroon international to be a £15.8 million-rated player.

Considering there is no real competition for Song and bearing in mind his proven ability in the Premier League, would it be worth a team of the calibre of Everton placing an opportunistic bid of £5 million to £7.5 million to test the club's resolve?
