Having come through the ranks of the Barcelona youth system, Deulofeu went on loan to Everton FC, managed by Roberto Martínez, last Summer, after scoring 18 goals for the Barça reserve team in the Second Division in the 2012/13 season.

In his time at Everton, Deulofue has played in 14 matches, 4 of those in the starting eleven, between Premier League and League Cup.  In total he has scored 3 goals for Robert Martínez’s team. His injury in the match against Fulham came at a time when he was beginning to have more impact on the team’s performances.
