Spanish giants Barcelona said on Saturday they had completed the signing of Alexander Song from Premier League club Arsenal for a fee of 19 million euros.

The Cameroon international is Barca’s second summer signing after Spain left-back Jordi Alba from Valencia, who cost 14 million euros.

Song, 24, will sign a five-year contract with Barca. He is scheduled to fly into the Catalan capital on Sunday for medical tests and will probably see Barca’s opening league game at home to Real Sociedad later on Sunday.

Tito Vilanova, Barca’s new coach, asked the club to sign Song because of his ability to play either in central defence or in defensive midfield.
