Alex Song

Barcelona-owned West Ham United midfielder Alex Song is reportedly on the radar of Italian club Inter Milan.

Inter Milan are interested in signing Barcelona-owned West Ham United midfielder Alex Song, according to Gianlucadimarzio.com.

It has been reported that the Italian giants want to sign Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure in the summer transfer, but they have an eye on Song as an alternative.

The Serie A outfit are reportedly also monitoring Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva, should they be unable to land Ivory Coast international Toure.

Song joined West Ham on loan from Spanish club Barcelona in the summer of 2014 and has been an important player for the London outfit.

Although the Cameroon international midfielder’s form has dipped in the second half of the season, he was a star player in the opening months.

The 27-year-old former Arsenal star has created 22 chances in 24 Premier League appearances for the Hammers so far this season, while having a pass accuracy of 76%.

Song has won 60 of the 162 tackles he has tried and 35 of the 53 dribbles he has attempted.
