Barcelona midfielder Alex Song says he would not be averse to the idea of taking on former club Arsenal in the Champions League Round of 16.

The draw for the first knockout phase takes place on Thursday and 25-year old ex-Gunner Song, who joined Barca in the summer, is keen on an Emirates Stadium return.

"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," he said.

"If we draw Arsenal I'd be happy to see the fans again and 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 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 them. I saw a lot of people come and a lot of people go at Arsenal."
