Barcelona are circulating Alex Song's name across Europe. The Telegraph says Song is available on a free loan - and can be signed permanently for a knockdown £8 million.

That could alert Tottenham, Everton and even Manchester United before the transfer window shuts at the end of this month.

Song ideally wants to return to the Premier League after being told to find a new club by Barca, despite being targeted by Galatasaray and clubs in Italy.
