The 23-year-old was frozen out of the Blues' first team earlier this season after struggling to impress manager Ronald Koeman but has been enjoying a new lease on life on loan at AC Milan.
His performances in Serie A led to a recall to the senior Spain team over the last international break but Milan's hopes of securing a permanent transfer for Deulofeu could be scuppered by Barça if a claim made by Mundo Deportivo has any substance.
Barcelona can buy Deulofeu back for €12m (£10m) this summer but are forbidden from selling him on for at least a year. Everton would also be entitled to a significant sell-on fee if the Catalonians do decide to transfer him out again after that.
