Chelsea are keen on signing Alex Song as a back up midfielder.
It is believed Jose Mourinho is very interested in signing Song, who plays for West Ham, on loan from Barcelona but it would cost the Blues no more than £10m for the Cameroon international
The Special One has insisted throughout the season that the summer would be quiet when it comes to transfers but it looks like something will be happening after all as reports coming from Spain suggest he would be interested to sign Song as back up for midfielders like Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic.
Song is on loan at the Hammers but they’re not interested in making his loan deal permanent. The former Arsenal player is willing to stay in London and a return to the Camp Nou is unlikely, so Chelsea sounds like an attractive option and offers the chance for a reunion with his former teammate Fabregas.
