It had been reported by numerous sources that the Cameroon international had drawn interest from the Spanish heavyweights who were tipped to make a bid in the region of £20m for his services.
Song himself also stated that despite the interest shown from Barcelona, he was still happy with Arsenal at the Emirates and hopefully will be for years to come seeing as he has three years to run on his current contract.
Wenger is quoted by Sky Sports as saying on the situation:
There’s nothing going on with Song. There’s nothing in that.
Song has three years [on his] contract, he’s not in the same situation as Robin Van Persie.
In Spain the newspapers are not really serious. We’ve had the experience of that. We’ve never had any contact with anybody from Barcelona.
Personally speaking, I can only think that Song will be let go if Barcelona come up with a massive bid considering Song still has three years to run on his contract.

In saying this however, we all know the financial situation of Barcelona so I would like to say that we are likely to see Song playing this weekend in an Arsenal shirt!
What do you guys think? Should we be worried about a potential transfer? Feel free to leave a comment below or comment on Song in the allArsenal.com forums for a chance to win an away shirt!
