Barcelona are reviving their interest for Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke.

Sport says Barca could move to sign Koke in the coming days and immediately loan him back to Atletico.

Barca are scrambling after their transfer ban - to begin in January 16 - was upheld by FIFA upon appeal yesterday.

They're now weighing up a move for Koke to secure him now, rather than risk losing the youngster to a rival next year.

Koke penned terms to 2019 with Atletico earlier this summer.
