Arsenal are interested in bringing Cristian Tello to the Emirates as part of any deal that would see Alex Song join Barcelona, according to ITV.com.

The Catalans have been strongly linked with a move for Gunners midfielder Song in recent days, with new boss Tito Vilanova said to want the Cameroonian international to replace the departed Seydou Keita.

The Barca forward, who is also a target for Liverpool, is expected to leave the Nou Camp this summer despite making his breakthrough into the first team during the second half of last season. The 20-year-old made 15 appearances, scoring 3 goals, but is now likely leave on a year long loan, while a permanent transfer has also been mooted.
