Barcelona are considering activating the buy back clause in Gerard Deulofeu’s Everton contract, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The forward joined the Spanish club in 2003 when he was nine and worked his way through the youth ranks, making his senior debut in August 2011.

After not holding down a first-team position, the 22-year-old spent two loan spells away at Everton and Sevilla before moving to the Toffees permanently in 2015.

However, he didn’t make the impact expected under Roberto Martinez, scoring only four goals in 33 appearances in all competitions in his first year as a permanent player at the club.

The Dutch winger made a switch to AC Milan until the end of this season in the January transfer window and Barcelona have reportedly been impressed with how he is getting on at the San Siro.

If the Catalan club were to bring Delofeu back to Spain, it would reportedly cost them around £6.7 million, which would be a good deal before his price increases as he starts to reach his potential.
