West Ham United are believed to be the frontrunners to sign Alex Song from Barcelona.

The 26-year old Cameroon midfielder is reportedly on his way out at the Nou Camp and is eyeing a return to the Premier League.

Sky Sports suggests that the Hammers are in a strong position to bring the former Arsenal star back to London despite interest from Italian club Napoli and Turkish side Galatasaray.

Tottenham were believed to be showing considerable interest in Song but have since gone cold on any deal, leaving West Ham to go after the cousin of former Hammers defender Rigobert Song.
