This opinion was echoed by another user. They said: “So Alex Song is training with Arsenal at the moment to keep up god fitness. His current club don’t want him. I’d actually sign him up, he was great for West Ham.”

One said: “I would love to see Alex Song back in our midfield.”

Another posted: “Alex Song currently training with Arsenal, has to be better than Xhaka.”

A fellow user wrote: “If Alex Song is training with us, we should sign him. Can do the dirty work better than all of our midfielders combined.”
