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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
