Barcelona winger Gerard Deulofeu may be the subject of intense speculation at the moment, but he does not seem to losing any sleep over it.
According to well-respected Spanish football journalist Guillem Balague, Merseyside outfit Everton are interested in signing the Spain international in the summer transfer window.
Deulofeu is going to be transferred to Everton. €3m with an option of FCB to rebuy him later on for a price. He didn't want to go on loan— Guillem Balague (@GuillemBalague) June 15, 2015
A cheap fee 4 Deulofeu means a cheap re-buy option for FCB. But he's still miles away from being a FCB player. He needs work, consistency...— Guillem Balague (@GuillemBalague) June 15, 2015
Deulofeu, though, does not seem to be too bothered about his future and is enjoying his holiday on a beach somewhere, as the following photo shows:
