Deulofeu keen on Goodison return?

02/06/2015  Comments (0)  jump
Gerard Deulofeu would welcome a return to Everton according to a report in the Liverpool Echo.

Phil Kirkbride's piece doesn't contain any direct quotes from the player who spent the 2013-14 season on loan at Goodison Park but Deulofeu will be at something of a crossroads this summer after returning from a temporary spell at Sevilla.

The Spanish winger's form dipped in the second half of the season just gone and he was not part of the team that won the Europa League against Dnipro in Warsaw last month.

Sevilla manager Unai Emery publicly acknowledged the 21 year-old's raw talent but admitted that he lacks the maturity to be a regular first-teamer.

He has incredible qualities but lacks others," Emery, recently told the Guardian. Put him out there, one on one and ... pfff.

But make him play football with team-mates, on a big pitch, and it's hard. He doesn't have the maturity or capacity for sacrifice yet.

With Sevilla unlikely to take him back on loan and Barcelona's side stuffed with world-class talent, another loan move is likely to be on the cards and Everton is a potential destination.

Roberto Martinez admitted in the fan sites interview that signing Deulofeu permanently was unrealistic but he did not explicitly rule out another loan.

Despite his mercurial form, Deulofeu was a fan favourite during his time at Goodison but there were unsubstantiated rumours that he lacked off-the-field discipline.
