Barcelona set to complete swoop for Everton star this summer

The Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern have been disappointed with Gerard Deulofeu’s second spell with the club.

Despite showing glimpses of brilliance, the exciting winger has failed to live up to the hype for the most part.

The 23-year-old is currently out on loan at AC Milan, where he is impressing, after Ronald Koeman sanctioned a loan move for the misfiring wide man.

After graduating from the Barcelona academy with high hopes, Deulofeu impressed during loan spells with Everton and Sevilla before signing a permanent deal with the Toffees.

However, Barcelona are now prepared to bring the twice-capped Spanish international back to the Nou Camp, according to Spanish media outlet Marca.

Everton will be helpless to Barcelona’s wish: Gerard Deulofeu’s deal at Everton has a “buy back” clause inserted in it, meaning that they can re-sign their former player until June 30th 2017.

According to this report, Barcelona will take Deulofeu back.

His buy back fee is 12 million euros so Everton will make a profit on the 5 million euros fee they paid to bring him in.

Our landlord admits that he had high hopes for Deulofeu at Everton and he would like to see him back in the Premier League one day.

Everton fans – is this a shame? Does Deulofeu genuinely have no future with Everton? Let us know in the comments below…
