Alex Song has reportedly been made a summer transfer target of AC Milan.
The midfielder has spent the 2014-15 campaign on a season-long loan deal at West Ham United from Barcelona.
It has been suggested that the Hammers are keen to sign the 27-year-old on a permanent basis, but they will face competition from Milan, according to Tuttosport.
The report claimed that Rossoneri head coach Filippo Inzaghi has identified Song as the ideal replacement for Nigel de Jong, who is expected to depart the San Siro.
Former Arsenal midfielder Song has two years left to run on his contract at the Camp Nou, but he has been deemed surplus to requirements by Barca boss Luis Enrique.
