Everton winger Gerard Deulofeu has expressed his determination to focus on international duties this week amid heavy transfer speculation.

The talented Spain international has excelled during a loan spell with AC Milan this season, prompting rumours that former club FC Barcelona are preparing a bid for the winger.

Deulofeu however is completely focused on impressing for the former world champions over the international period.

“Maybe sometimes I’ve thought too much in the future. I’m living a very good moment in football and in the personal field, I’m calm,” he said at a new conference, as reported by the Daily Mail.

“I have to think about the national team right now and then I have to choose the best option.

“It will be a busy summer in my case but I’m calm and everything will work out for sure.

“I’m going through a good football and personal moment. Let me enjoy it, my future will be decided.”

Deulofeu failed to sparkle during his time at Everton but was inspired form during his stint in Milan, pushing the San Siro outfit into the Europa League with a series of impressive displays.

It remains to be seen whether Toffees boss Ronald Koeman will want to sell the star forward.

Deulofeu still has time on his side and will clearly improve – and definitely has enough talent to cause any Premier League defence major problems next year.

With the transfer window merry-go-round in full swing, things will definitely hot up in the upcoming weeks – whether that includes a change of scenery for the fleet-footed winger, time will tell.
