Former Arsenal and current Barcelona midfielder could be on his way to Manchester United after being deemed surplus to requirements, reports the Telegraph.
Barca are willing to sell the 26-year-old on a permanent deal for a knockdown price of £8m, or although him to leave on-loan.
This has also attracted the interest of Everton, Galatasaray, Tottenham Hotspur and a number of clubs in Italy, although Song is understood to prefer a return to the Premier League.
This is because the Cameroon international enjoyed seven years of success at the Emirates Stadium with the Gunners, making 204 appearances in all competitions.
However, since leaving for the Nou Camp in the summer of 2012 game time has become limited for Song and the African is now well down the pecking order under new head coach Luis Enrique.
With the ability to play in defensive midfield and as a central defender the Cameroonian is an attractive prospect, particularly for United.
The Red Devils are desperately seeking a holding player to protect their back four after their poor display against Swansea City in their 2014/15 opener on Saturday.
Louis van Gaal’s men lost 2-1 at Old Trafford in shock fashion in that match and in a 3-5-2 formation one of the midfielders needs to be able to support the defence.
Under van Gaal’s guidance Nigel de Jong occupied this role for the Netherlands at the 2014 World Cup and Song would be tasked with doing a similar thing at the Theatre of Dreams.
