Alex Song is commonly known as Arsenal’s defensive midfielder, but true to Arsene Wenger’s form he still wants the Cameroonian to join in with Arsenal’s attack with his new found freedom.
Wenger said: “First of all, if you asked Alex, ‘do you want to attack or defend?’, he would say attack,”
“He is naturally a guy who tends to go forward and he always had good vision.
“He has improved his technique of transmission. When he arrived here, the passing of his longer balls was not the best. But he was worked on that, improved on that and now he can combine vision with technique.
“I felt that, for example, the goal we scored on Saturday, before the last pass when he gives it to Walcott, that shows you the guy has vision. It is not counted as a final ball but it is basically one.”
So has Wenger finally found the elusive replacement for Cesc Fabregas? Step forward Alex Song!
