Spain U21 international is keen to experience life in the Premier League.
Both Everton and Tottenham Hotspur are set to go head to head this summer in order to secure a season-long loan move for coveted young FC Barcelona forward Gerard Deulofeu, says the Daily Mirror.
The highly rated Spain Under-21 international has been with the Liga champions for his whole career to date, spending the majority of the previous three seasons playing for the Catalan giants’ ‘B’ side with great success.
In total, the 19-year-old has appeared in 68 league fixtures for Barca’s reserves in the Segunda Division over the course of the past three years, finding the back of the net on an impressive 27 occasions during that time.
As a result, the player has even made six appearances in all competitions for the senior side during the past two campaigns, without finding the back of the net as yet though, and now Deulofeu is understood to be keen on gaining experience in the Premier League by spending a season on loan at either Spurs or Everton, a decision the Spaniard is set to make next week after returning from the Fifa U20 World Cup.
