Liverpool are ‘hours away’ from completing the signing of former Arsenal midfielder Alex Song from Barcelona, according to reports in Spain.
According to the respected Catalan newspaper Sport, the Reds have made an offer for Song, who has been told he can leave Barca this summer.
The paper says the offer could be accepted within hours and while Galatasaray have also made a bid, a switch to Merseyside is the most obvious.
Song has struggled to hold down a regular spot on Barcelona, playing mostly as a utility man against smaller teams in La Liga.
No fee has been mentioned, but it’s thought that Liverpool would be paying about £8 million for the player.
