Watford’s Gerard Deulofeu linked to Milan return

Milan want to sign Spanish winger Gerard Deulofeu from Watford but the Hornets are demanding €25m for a permanent departure, say reports.

The 24-year-old has scored one goal in four international caps for the Spain senior team and joined the English club on a permanent basis from Barcelona in a €12m deal last summer.

Deulofeu, who has also previously played for Everton and Sevilla in loan spells, made 18 appearances for the Rossoneri on loan in the 2016/17 campaign.

Transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio states that Watford are insisting on a permanent sale and a deal which would double their fee paid to Barca a year ago.
