Barcelona youngster Gerard Deulofeu, currently on-loan at Premier League outfit Everton, wants to return to his parent club at the end of the season despite an impressive campaign in England.
The 19-year-old secured a season-long loan to Goodison Park last summer and although he has picked up a number of injuries, the winger has notched two league goals in 15 appearances for Roberto Martinez's side.
However, the highly-rated talent is eager to return to the Spanish champions and compete with the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar for a starting role next season.
"I am working every day to get back to Barcelona next season," he told Catalunya Radio.
"I watch all their matches and believe that they are having a good season.
"My dream is to find a place in the Barcelona attacking line-up and to do that I am progressing in the Premier League."
Everton have had a hugely successful campaign under Martinez, sitting 6th in the league and are preparing to face Arsenal in the FA Cup quarter-final, but Deulofeu insists he wants to return to the Catalan giants after his experience with The Toffees.
"I accepted the challenge last summer and I am happy with my decision. Now I am more mature as a person and as a footballer.
"Perhaps people at Barcelona do not have confidence in me, but that is normal.
"I am a young player and normally the coaches do not believe in the young players."
After making his LA Liga debut in 2012, Barcelona awarded the winger a long-term contract last year with a reported €35m buy-out clause, but it remains to be seen if he'll be able to fulfil his potential at the Camp Nou.
