Napoli ask for Deulofeu – report

Barcelona forward Gerard Deulofeu could be set to join Italian giants Napoli on a loan deal in January, according to reports.

The 23-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan in Serie A with Milan after falling out of favour at Everton, before returning to the Camp Nou in summer in a 12m deal.

A report in Rai Sport now suggests the Naples-based club are keen on bringing him in for a similar arrangement in January and the player is reportedly keen for more playing time.

The Spain international has started only five La Liga games this season for the Blaugrana, scoring once, and can play on either side of an attacking three.
