Barcelona midfielder Alex Song hopes to meet former club Arsenal in the Champions League final.

Arsenal were knocked out by the Spanish giants in the knockout stages both in 2010 and 2011 and the draw for the last 16 of the Champions League will be staged in Nyon, Switzerland tomorrow.

Song, 25, said: “Of course, I would like to play against Arsenal.

“For me to go back there, where I had seven magnificent years, would be something very special.

“If we draw Arsenal I’d be happy to see the fans again, go back to the club, even though if we go there it will be to get the best result possible.

“Arsenal’s a big club, but I think Barcelona’s a level above, because of the talent of the players there.

“That’s no disrespect to Arsenal, because they have talented players, but I think the Barcelona players are above. I saw a lot of people come and a lot of people go at Arsenal.”
