Liverpool have set their sights on Barcelona midfielder Alex Song as Brendan Rodgers seeks to strengthen his squad according to the Daily Star.

The Anfield boss could well do with alternative central midfield options and may well feel the need to bring in a steely presence given that Rodgers can only really call upon Brazilian Lucas Leiva to fill such a role.

26 year old Cameroon international is certain to leave the Nou Camp in the summer having failed to retain a regular foothold in the club’s starting eleven and a return to the Premier League may tempt the defensive midfielder.

Song spent seven seasons at Arsenal before moving to Barcelona in August 2012 but has made just nine La Liga starts this term and is seen as a player the Catalan club can afford to cash-in on.

Barcelona will seek to recoup the £15m they paid for Song, a fee that seems reasonable in today’s inflated transfer market.

Currently Rodgers can call upon Steven Gerrard, Joe Allen, Jordan Henderson and the aforementioned Lucas to fill central midfield roles and with Liverpool hoping to be involved in Champions League action next season there is a definite need to bring in players who are experienced at the highest level, such as Song.
