Liga - Napoli looking to lure Song away from Barca

Napoli are increasingly reported in Italy this week as ready to try their luck in January with a bid for Barcelona’s Alex Song.

The Cameroon international has struggled for consistent game-time during the first 18 months of his career with the Catalans and as such, Rafa Benitez’s side are listed as seeing him ‘attainable’ this winter.

The Serie A outfit are described in various outlets as at least waiting for a response on the player’s availability from Barca, whilst Sport Mediaset assert that a deal is already close to being agreed.
