Wenger rules out move for former midfielder after player spotted at Arsenal
Arsene Wenger has dismissed the idea that Arsenal could re-sign Alex Song, after the Cameroonian international was released by Russian side Rubin Kazan.
Song ended a seven year association with the Gunners by joining Barcelona in 2012, but Wenger has confirmed that he has no interest in signing the 30-year-old.
Speaking in a press conference, as quoted by TalkSport, the French born manager indicated that Song is participating in some sort of training at the Arsenal facility,
“The situation with him is that he looks for a football club and I allowed him to come here in the afternoon when the training ground is available, to work on his fitness.
“Nothing more than that,” Wenger added, quashing any notion of an Arsenal reunion for Song.
The Cameroonian had relative success during his time at the Emirates, amassing over 150 appearances for the Gunners, and during his time with Arsenal was twice named to the African Cup of Nations ‘best XI’.
His career has taken a down hill turn since leaving Barcelona, with brief spells and West Ham and Rubin Kazan, yet the 30-year-old currently finds himself without a team.
In other Arsenal news, it has been reported that Liverpool are ready to pounce on this Arsenal midfielder who is soon to be out of a contract.
