After getting relegated from the Premier League with Watford, Gerrard Deulofeu is set to leave the club and play elsewhere, with several clubs, including AC Milan, considering making a move for the Barcelona youth product.
At the end of July, we informed about Gianluca Di Marzio’s words to Sky Sport that Deulofeu wants to return to the San Siro and has been sending messages through his agent to the Rossoneri management. At that time, Maldini kept the option on the table but prioritized other deals.
However, it seems that interest in the player has cooled down completely in the last couple of days, as per reports from Milannews.it two days ago.
For this reason, Deulofeu will likely be forced to consider other options and there seems to be another Italian team showing interest in his services.
According to Sportitalia (via milanlive.it), Fiorentina have initiated contacts with Watford for the potential arrival of the attacker. Deulofeu is also appreciated by the likes of Valencia, who could bring him back to Spain.
