Offers from Italy for Barcelona player

A trio of Italian clubs are interested in Everton winger Gerard Deulofeu as Barcelona stall on triggering their option to buy, say reports in Spain.

According to Diario Sport, the Spain Under 21 captain is interesting Roma, Juventus and Milan – whom he enjoyed a successful loan spell with earlier this year.

The Catalans have an option of signing the former Sevilla player for €12m from the Toffees, but this reportedly expires at the end of June.

The 23-year-old reportedly wants a move that will guarantee him first-team football and this appears unlikely at the Camp Nou, although Barca sporting director Robert Fernandez has spoken of his willingness to conclude such a deal.
