Watford are edging closer to agreeing a deal with Barcelona for the signing of Deulofeu

Despite showing promising signs during his spell with Everton, Deulofeu failed to live up to expectations for the Blaugrana during the first half of last season.

The 24-year-old only managed to bag a total of two goals and three assists in 17 games for the Spanish giants during the first half of last season, with Deulofeu not fairing much better with Watford after his move in January.

The Spaniard was only able to clock up one goal and one assist for the Hornets in seven league appearances, a poor return for a player of his quality.

If Barcelona to get this one over the line, it’ll be interesting to see if they bring in anyone to replace the winger this summer.
