The 19-year-old has moved to Goodison Park on a season-long loan from Barcelona and cannot wait to dazzle Everton fans with the skills he has learned from the likes of Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta.

The Spaniard said: "I'm an attacking player and I can play wide. I'm quite quick, quite decent at one-on-one situations and I'm looking forward very much to helping the Everton team.

"Obviously training at Barcelona is a fantastic experience. You train alongside players like Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta, who are clearly some of the best players in the world.

"To learn from them is a very nice experience."

Deulofeu scored 18 times in 32 appearances for Bareclona's B side last season and starred at this summer's Under-20 World Cup in Israel, netting a brace in Spain's 4-1 group-stage win over USA.

Due to his international involvement, Deulofeu is enjoying a short break before linking up with Everton for pre-season training.

"I'm really looking forward to meeting my new teammates and getting started," he said.

"Obviously I have got a few days holiday coming my way because I have just finished in the tournament, but I can't wait to get started."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
