Serie A Giants Want Spanish Youngster: 3 Players Including Former Ace To Replace Him At Barcelona

Gerard Deulofeu’s Barcelona career hasn’t really taken off at any time since his arrival in the first team in 2013. The Spaniard was meant to be one of the frontal forces of the Catalan side but despite the initial promise he has failed to deliver.

A product of the famed La Masia academy, Delofeu didn’t have the chance to prosper in Spain and he arrived at Everton in 2015 as one of the hottest prospects.

But barring a few brilliant moments, things turned out to be pretty bad for the youngster and before it could get worse, the Toffees sent him on loan to AC Milan.

In Italy, Deulofeu had been pretty commanding as the winger netted four goals and three assists in 18 appearances for the Italian giants. His promising form encouraged Barcelona to activate their buy-back clause and they brought the player for £10.6m.

But it has been a reoccurrence of his early days as the Spanish international has hardly had any contribution to them. His struggle hasn’t gone unnoticed and according to reports, Napoli are interested in him and are ready to take him in January on loan.

The Italian side are in a very healthy position in Serie-A and are one of the title contenders for the Italian title. Maurizio Sarri wants some more attackers to his side and has identified Deulofeu as a potential arrival.

With Deulofeu set to depart, Barcelona would need someone to replace him. Let’s look at three possible arrivals at the Nou Camp.

Thomas Lemar

The Monaco man was one of the turbulent performers last season as Monaco cruised to the Ligue 1 title but this season he hasn’t lived up to the expectations this season.

In 11 games he found the net just once but he has the killer instincts in him which could be used by the Catalans. Barcelona would definitely fancy a player like him and his arrival would ease the burden off from the other attackers.

Yannick Carrasco

The Belgian international has been one of the standout performers in the La Liga and his brilliant work on the flanks could be a great asset. The Atletico Madrid winger has electrifying pace and can dodge a number of defenders with utter ease.

Alexis Sanchez

The Chilean international’s future has been full of speculation and Barcelona might try to bring back their prodigal son. Sanchez had pretty good memories at the Nou Camp and Ernesto Valverde would be more than happy he would be able to have Sanchez at his disposal.
