Alex Song is currently performing for West Ham United on a loan deal with his parent club being Barcelona but the Cameroon midfielder has revealed his intention on making a return to Arsenal, which is the club where he used to play with and it’s the team where he spent his most time as he made over 120 appearances.
Song revealed his interest in returning to the Emirates Stadium.
“I would have liked to go back to Arsenal but they did not want to. That’s life. Cesc Fabregas also wanted to return to Arsenal but they did not want to exercise their option. It is surprising when you see what he is doing at Chelsea. He is stronger than before’’
‘’Arsenal is a family. I will see people who I know well. This is the club that made me grow up; I arrived there at the age of 17’’ Alex Song told reporters as he described just how important and how much of an impact Arsenal has been for him.
According to the Cameroon midfielder, he wanted to return to Arsenal but Arsene Wenger was not interested in bringing him back which was a similar thing with what happened to Cesc Fabregas as the Spanish midfielder wanted to come back to Arsenal after his relationship with Barcelona reached its end.
If this is indeed all true and Arsene Wenger did not want to bring back either Fabregas or Song then it would be a rather surprising decision from the French manager as his team is consistently being hit by injuries that has hampered the capabilities of Arsenal on a number of occasions on making a serious and genuine charge for the Premier League title.
Bringing back quality players such as Alex Song or Cesc Fabregas would be a good decision for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal as these players can spark new life to the squad.
