A possible Gerard Deulofeu exit from Everton is one of the most covered transfer rumours of the January window. There’s some excitement in Italy that a Serie A club, with AC Milan linked the most, could be signing Deulofeu.

The claims have reached Spain and could be a chance for Barcelona to get themselves some spending money.

Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo point out that Barcelona have a first refusal clause, meaning Everton would have to sell to them if they matched the offers of others.

Passing up the clause, Barcelona will be due 5% of any transfer fee.

That’s not a great deal for Everton to worry about, but would be received as a nice bonus at Barcelona, and an add-on to what they originally received from Everton.
