Alex Song regrets leaving Arsenal for Barcelona, according to his cousin, and reports are linking him with a return to the Gunners.
The midfielder joined Barca last summer in a deal worth £17million but the move has not gone according to plan as the player has spent more time on the bench than on the pitch.
Rigobert Song has now spoken out and says the midfielder is unhappy at the Nou Camp and misses being a part of the Arsenal squad, where he was such an influential figure.
"Barcelona put so much effort into signing him last summer, and Alex turned down many great teams in order to sign with them," he said. "But this season he has only been a substitute. He is not happy.
"At Arsenal he was a leader on and off the field, he doesn't feel like this in Spain and it makes him feel bad."
Arsene Wenger has never really managed to replace Song but it remains to be seen whether he would consider taking him back and the price would certainly have to be right.
However, it is thought the 25-year-old would jump at the chance to return to the Emirates Stadium if Wenger made an approach and the Gunners are said to be the only team he would return to England for.
