The Gunners have been monitoring the 21 year old winger for some time but their interest cooled following a serious knee injury that has ruled out the Catalan for the first half of the current campaign.
Cuenca has now recovered from his seven month lay-off but faces a battle to force his way into Tito Vilanova’s first team set-up and could therefore be interested in a move to the Premier League.
The adaptable attacker, who can play either in a supporting striker role or more commonly on the flanks, will have to fight the likes of Pedro, David Villa, Cristian Tello and Alexis Sanchez to earn a spot in Barcelona’s front-line alongside Lionel Messi. It may be a fight he is unlikely to win.
Cuenca is a stylish performer who is comfortable on the ball and could well be a wide attacker who could take up Theo Walcott’s role now that the England man has successfully proved himself as a striker.
