The Spanish winger may be returning to Milan but wearing different colors.
With Coutinho signing for Barcelona, the Catalans will next look to shed some weight in attack.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Gerard Deulofeu was already at the fringes of the depth chart for the league-leaders and now is even further behind with the arrival of the Brazilian. The winger already has an agreement with the Nerazzurri and a loan-deal with Barcelona is a step away.
There is however a caveat to the deal as Napoli are also interested in the winger and that would be Deulofeu’s preferred destination. The Azzurri are chasing after Simone Verdi from Bologna but if it falls through, then the Spaniard would be the fallback.
Deulofeu has only made 12 appearances this season for Barcelona, scoring in two of them.
