Should Everton move for Gerard Deulofeu's exciting former Barcelona team-mate Munir El Haddadi?

The Toffees have had success with the winger, would the forward be a similar hit.

In recent weeks Everton's summer signing Gerard Deulofeu has started to show little glimmers of his true potential.

He tore Reading apart in a recent Capital One Cup tie and his assist for Romelu Lukaku against West Ham this weekend gone was sublime.

He is currently captaining the Spain under-21s and Everton are starting to see a return in their investment of their former loanee.

So should they be considering making a move for yet another of Barcelona's young players who might not make the grade at the Nou Camp, especially after reports emerged this week he might be sold.

It was reported by this week that Barcelona were open to the idea of selling young forward Munir El Haddadi, with a buy-back clause inserted into any arrangement.

Everton have been tentatively linked before and he would be a great coup for the club.

With Kevin Mirallas threatening to spit out his dummy again the club will soon need a replacement and Haddadi is a younger, hungrier model of the spirited Belgian.

If Barcelona are considering allowing El Haddadi some sort of departure in the future than Everton must be ready to pounce.
