Anfield side scouting Cameroon international during his loan spell at Upton Park.
Liverpool are said to be hot on the heels of in-form Barcelona midfielder Alex Song with Brendan Rodgers having sent scouts to monitor the Cameroon international during his loan spell at West Ham.
Song has been a key performer at Upton Park with Sam Allardyce’s side starting the season in superb fashion and has seemingly made the most of using his stint in east London as a shop window for his services.
Rodgers is keen to add a steely midfield signing to his squad and speculation is rife that tough tackler Lucas could be set for a January exit after struggling with form and fitness in recent seasons.
Though Song would not be available until the end of the current campaign Liverpool are keeping a close eye on the former Arsenal man and will look to tempt the Barcelona man into making a permanent move back to the Premier League though will need to have secured a Champions League berth for 2015/16 to help in this regard.
Song left for Barcelona in August 2012 with Arsenal happily taking the Catalan side’s £15m fee after the player’s unprofessional behaviour and that’s one area of concern Rodgers will look to address should Liverpool put in a firm offer for the 27 year old.
Perhaps unsurprisingly Song failed to retain a foothold in the Barcelona starting eleven but has more than proven his ability to make an impact when afforded a good run of action and has the required level of top level experience to be of great use to a Liverpool side looking to build on last term’s successes.
