Race is on for Deulofeu

Napoli, Inter, Roma and Sevilla are eager to snap up Barcelona bench-warmer Gerard Deulofeu in the transfer window.

He impressed during his six-month loan spell at Milan last season and earned a permanent move back to the Blaugrana from Everton for €12m.

However, he has struggled for playing time with two goals and three assists in 16 competitive games so far.

According to Don Balon, there are four offers on the table for the 23-year-old forward.

They are from Sevilla, where Vincenzo Montella already worked with Deulofeu at Milan and has just taken over, plus Napoli, Inter and Roma in Serie A.

Sportitalia point to Napoli as the favourites, because Deulofeu would slot into their 4-3-3 tactics and can play any of the trident attack roles.
