Apparently, according to The Metro, Alex Song wants a return back to Arsenal.
Whether it’s a made up story, or whether there’s some truth behind it, it does raise a good question:
Would you want Alex Song back?
In days gone by, a return back to Arsenal after leaving would have been impossible, but we’ve seen Jens Lehmann, Sol Campbell and Thierry Henry all come back after stints away from the club. Obviously they were free stop gaps but still, Song coming back isn’t impossible.
The more likely option of course is that he leaves Barcelona after “his dream” doesn’t become reality and it dawns on him that he’s notÂ Barcelona’s most important player, and moves to Tottenham or another club that wasn’t as good as Arsenal.
But would we take him back?
Although we’re still in the running for a Champions League spot after losing Song and Van Persie, I do feel we’ve missed Song’s presence.
I feel Arteta is more effective higher up the pitch and a midfield of Song, Arteta and Wilshere would be formidable. Aside from his tackling and covering the back four, his assist rate was excellent as well.
But what do you think?
Would you welcome him back with open arms?
