LIVERPOOL and Arsenal have revived their interest in a young Barcelona hotshot, according to reports today.

With the transfer window hotting up, Talksport have revealed the Premier League duo are looking again at 22-year-old Barcelona forward Isaac Cuenca.

Whether there is enough interest to tie up a deal before the transfer window closes tomorrow remains to be seen, however.

Elsewhere, the Daily Mirror reports that St Etienne are holding out for £18m from Chelsea for their 19-year-old French centre-back Kurt Zouma.

Zouma was linked with a move to Newcastle United last year.
