The 27 year old former Arsenal man has impressed during his season long loan spell at Upton Park and Brendan Rodgers will look to lure the midfielder to Anfield in the summer.
Song has handily retired from the Cameroon national team set-up and this certainly helps Sam Allardyce as he seeks to keep his side in among the top seven after a strong first half of the Premier League campaign.
With Steven Gerrard set to leave Liverpool a move for Song could help boost their central midfield options and in that regard Rodgers is also targeting Aston Villa’s Fabian Delph.
Barcelona are unable to sign players in 2015 and may therefore elect to usher Song back to the Nou Camp in the summer but if not then they will demand a decent sum for the player given he is tied down to a contract that runs until 2017.
