As per the latest reports, Chelsea are lining up a shocking bid to sign the Barcelona midfielder Alex Song. The Blues are willing to pay £6million to secure the services of 27-year old.
The player has been sent out on loan to West Ham from Barcelona last season and has been in fine form in the first half of the season. The Cameroon international had done enough to impress Jose Mourinho to make a transfer move.
West Ham are ready to offer £5million as his form was key to West Ham United’s decent finish last season. The player currently has only one year left in his contract at Barcelona and the club is looking to cash in on the player.
Jose Mourinho wants to strengthen his midfield by making some key additions this summer as they want to dominate England and enjoy success in Europe. Song is seen as the ideal to partner Nemanja Matic in the midfield, which will allow Jose Mourinho to play Cesc Fabregas in further advanced role.
