Gerard Deulofeu could return to Everton for the second half of the Premier League season after Barcelona claimed not to be happy with the poor action he gets on loan at Sevilla.

Having only played 17 minutes in the Spanish La Liga so far this season, Barcelona are planning to cut off Deulofeu loan deal and redirect him elsewhere, and a return to Everton may be his next destination.

Roberto Martinez was keen to keep the 20-year-old forward for another season this summer, but his respective club Barcelona opted to send the youngster to Sevilla on loan.

Player development

The 20-year-old forward figured 29 times in Everton's squad last season and scored on four occasions, including an 84-minute equaliser in a classic Premier League match against Arsenal that left Everton draw 1-1 at the Emirates.

Barcelona are looking to cut off his loan spell at Sevilla to send the player to another club but a return to the Premier League with Everton is likely to be his first destination after one successful year last season.

Deulofeu is another Barcelona product as he went through Barca Youth system at the famous La Masia camp, and has progressed through the Reserve team where he scored 18 goals during the 2012-2013 season.

The youngster signed his first professional contract with the Spanish giant in April 2011 and made his first official appearance with the first Team in October 2012, replacing Cesc Fabregas in the 63 minute in a 5-0 home win against RCD Mallorca.

Only aged 20, Deulofeu has a long and promising future and his development overseas, and especially in the Premier League will give him a lot of experience to succeed in Barcelona's senior side later in his career.

Everton benefit

Such good news will definitely interest Everton who are looking to add a little bit more strength upfront, and Deulofeu could be Martinez's priority in the January transfer window.

A come back to the Premier League would see Everton flying high and win in some glory nights, which may leave Martinez's team reach a potential top four finish after missing out by only seven points last term.
