Deulofeu set for Inter loan?

Italian giants Inter are closing in on a loan deal for out-of-favour Barcelona forward Gerard Deulofeu, according to reports.

The 23-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan in Serie A with Milan after not being involved in Everton’s first-team action, before returning to the Camp Nou in summer in a €12m deal.

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.

A report in Diario Sport follows up on various reports in Italy that the forward could be set for a two-year loan move to the Nerazzurri.

The Milanese giants are also eyeing up the potential of a loan move for Barcelona full-back Aleix Vidal, says the report, with Joao Cancelo possibly to return to Valencia with Inter unwilling to take up their purchase option.
