The Anfield manager is said to have been greatly impressed by the Cameroon international’s displays and will look to make a permanent move for the former Arsenal man next summer.
Song no doubt agreed to a temporary move to Upton Park so as to use the chance of regular first team football to act as a shop window for his talents.
A permanent move next summer would depend on Barcelona’s chances of having their transfer ban lifted, which prevents the La Liga side buying or selling players until January 2016.
Rodgers may feel he needs further steely cental midfield options with his current squad not boasting all that many options in that regard with Lucas Leiva struggling with injury concerns in recent seasons and Steven Gerrard perhaps not best suited to a holding role.
27 year old Song struggled to retain a foothold in the Barcelona first team set-up during his first two seasons at the Nou Camp and is likely to be looking to secure a permanent move away from the Catalan outfit when his loan spell at Upton Park comes to a close and could be tempted by a move to Liverpool and one imagines if the Merseyside club secure a Champions League berth for next term then a move would become all the more plausible.
