The Cameroon international is one of the most highly-rated footballers in France and has already been targeted by Chelsea and Manchester United.
But French champions Lyon are hoping to keep the teenage defender in Ligue 1 after asking for information on Song.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding the future of coach Paul Le Guen, Lyon are already making plans for potential summer reinforcements.
Song has shot to the head of their shopping list following a string of impressive displays this season, despite his tender years.
The stopper only turned 18 last month but could be joining a big club in the summer, particularly if Bastia are relegated from the top flight.
Though Song is under contract until 2008, he is expected to leave the Corsican side sooner, rather than later.
