Gerard Defulofeu could move to Serie A rivals: agent


On-loan Everton playmaker Gerard Deulofeu is in demand according to his agent Fabio Parisi, currently plying his trade with AC Milan.

Parisi has told Italian radio station Radio Marte that Napoli, FC Barcelona and AC Milan are all interested in attempting to sign Deulofeu on a full time basis.

“Barcelona will give it some thought because they have the right to buy him back, but it will also be important what the lad wants,” he said.

“(Napoli) could be an alternative if Mertens ends up on the market, but Deulofeu wants to be playing regularly and there would be a lot of competition for him there”

Deulofeu is at the Rossoneri on a temporary basis having moved there in the January transfer market from Everton.

If the 23-year-old does in fact decide to leave Goodison Park, it will mean Barcelona have the first option to buy him back, due to a clause in his current contract.

But Napoli are the red hot favourites to sign the winger, though the situation may depend on whether Dries Mertens moves away from the club, with Manchester United touted as a possible destination.

Deulofeu has caught the eye in Milan, scoring two goals and assisting three.
