According to the report, Gerard Deulofeu could be set to join Italian giants Napoli on a loan deal in January. The 23-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan in Serie A with Milan after falling out of favour at Everton, before returning to the Camp Nou in summer. Napoli are keen on bringing him and the player is reportedly keen for more playing time. The Spain international has started only five La Liga games this season.

How strong that interest is and whether Napoli will make a winter move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
