Sam Allardyce nearly signed Everton's Gerard Deulofeu for West Ham United

Posted March 24, 2017

Deulofeu started his career at the Spanish side before sealing a move to Everton, where he initially starred before falling out of favour under Ronald Koeman this term.

The 23-year-old has breathed fresh life into his career at AC Milan and his performances for the Rossoneri also earned him a call up to the Spain squad for the upcoming global fixtures.

Despite reports that Barcelona could be interested in bringing him back to the club, Gerard Deulofeu has expressed his happiness with life at AC Milan.

Barcelona could welcome a couple of familiar faces back to Camp Nou this summer, with club director Robert Fernandez admitting to tracking Gerard Deulofeu and Hector Bellerin. And his displays for Milan earned him a surprise recall by Julen Lopetegui for the World Cup qualifying match at home against Israel and a friendly away to France. He could yet return to Everton or extend his loan move at the San Siro during a summer likely to be partly dominated by the future of the winger. Deulofeu told reporters, according to "Right now I'm only thinking about Milan and the Spanish national team".
