Deulofeu interesting English clubs

Gerard Deulofeu is attracting Premier League clubs after his performances for Spain in the European Under-19 Championships, particularly Liverpool.

A Marca report claims that the Anfield club are willing to pay close to €10m for the Barcelona winger, who has already made his La Blaugrana first-team debut when he came on for David Villa in the 63rd minute of a 5-0 home win over Real Mallorca in October 2011.

There has also been an enquiry from ambitious Queens Park Rangers, who would like to take the 18-year-old on a season-long loan, but Barcelona are unwilling to enter negotiations with anybody at the moment as they consider him one of their most promising youngsters.

It is similar situation to that of Cristian Tello last season, when he was gradually eased into Pep Guardiola’s side, and Deulofeu will get a number of opportunities during pre-season to convince new boss Tito Vilanova he is worthy of promotion.
