Looks like Barca, FIFA's favourite club have their beady eyes set on Alex Song. Their manager Tito Vilanova has telegraphed his intent landing the Arsenal midfielder. And just as in the past, its the players who are softening up the target.
"He's a great player. If he joins the club we will welcome him with open arms", said Gerard Piqué.
What Barca wants, Barca gets. The good thing this season is that Arsenal have taken pre-emptive action and should make signing Nuri Sahin a priority. Even if Song's transfer does not work out it is wise to have someone of Sahin's talent putting pressure on him from the bench.
