Serie A giant AC Milan want to sign Everton player Gerard Deulofeuon a permanent basis, according to reports.
The Spanish winger moved to AC Milan on a loan deal and his fortunes transformed. Deulofeu has been spectacular since he started playing at the San Siro unlike when he was at Goodison Park where he barely made the first team.
The player was invited to the Spanish setup recently where he grabbed his first for the senior team. When Everton loaned the player, they did not add the option of permanent purchase so Deulofeu is poised to return at the end of the season.
However, reports making the round say AC Milan are now seeking to reach an agreement with the Premier League side for the player on a permanent basis. Milan consider the Spaniard a great prospect and want his to be tied officially to the club.
When Everton signed the player, Barcelona inserted a buyback clause so the Blaugrana have the advantage of snapping up the player ahead of Everton and Milan. They would only have to offer €12million for the player.
AC Milan are reportedly trying to convince Barcelona to let them have the rising star after reports surfaced that Nou Camp want the product of their academy back. MundoDeportivo reports that Milan have told the player to settle down as they really want him at the club. On the other hand, Tuttosportadds that the player himself is reluctant to return to the La Liga champions as he wants the slight edge of making the Spanish team.
Deulofeu knows he would rarely get to start in Barcelona so he prefers to remain at the San Siro, playing regularly and hoping to get recognized.
