London: Arsenal midfielder Alex Song is reportedly on the verge of joining Spanish giants Barcelona.
The 24-year-old will not feature in Saturday's opening Premier League match against Sunderland. The Gunners manager Arsene Wenger is all set to bring Real Madrid's Nuri Sahin as a replacement for Song.
Asked about Song's possible exit and new players being signed, Wenger said Friday "both can happen".
Wenger said "this decision [on Song] is not made", but added that no bid had been received for the player.
If Song leaves the Emirates Stadium in the coming days, he will be the second player to have gone out after Robin van Persie.
