Arsenal Agrees Deal With Barcelona to Sell Alex Song for £15m

Arsenal has confirmed that the club has agreed terms with Barcelona for the transfer of midfielder Alex Song.

In the same week that Arsenal lost leading goalscorer and captain Robin van Persie, Arsene Wenger has now lost star midfielder Alex Song.

According to Arsenal, “Song will now travel to the Catalan club to agree personal terms and undergo a medical ahead of the proposed move.”

Arsenal signed Alex Song in 2005 for £1 million from French club Bastia. Pending his medical and personal terms, Song will join Barcelona for £15m in a five-year deal.

After a disappointing nil-nil draw at home against Sunderland where Arsenal misfired several times in front of goal, the pressure will be on Arsene Wenger to make new signings between now and the end of the month.
