Everton fans have been growing impatient in the transfer market, as they anxiously await an official confirmation of Gerard Deulofeu’s move to Goodison Park.
The Toffees had the Barcelona youngster on-loan during the 2013/14 season, before he then spent last term on-loan at Sevilla. However, this time Deulofeu has insisted on a permanent transfer away from the Catalan side.
With reports stating Deulofeu is in Liverpool for talks and a medical, whilst it’s stated they are the ‘only club’ for him as he rejected other offers, Toffees fans are biting their nails waiting for an announcement.
Things haven’t been made any better with the swift conclusion of rivals Liverpool’s move for Roberto Firmino and some Everton fans have now started to fear the worst.
Nevertheless, the wait is worth it for a £3m bargain.
Will Everton hurry up and sign Deulofeu and Henen now please, so I can get on with the rest of my life?

Big fan of Everton dragging out the Deulofeu deal until Friday so we can all go straight to town once it’s announced. — Darren (@nsno_83) June 24, 2015
Impressive work from Ian Ayre securing that deal though. If only #Everton could do deals happen quickly, suspect Deulofeu more complicated.

Why has It taken Liverpool a day or 2 to confirm firmino but Everton are still yet to confirm deulofeu a week after talks started? #worried
