Barcelona will re-sign winger Gerard Deulofeu from Everton after exercising a buy-back clause believed to be worth 12m euros (£10.6m).
Deulofeu originally went on loan to Everton in the 2013-14 season and returned in a £4.3m deal in 2015.
The 23-year-old made 13 appearances for Everton last season before joining AC Milan on loan in January.
The Catalan club said they expect “terms will be agreed” on a two-year deal.
After a good first season on Merseyside, Deulofeu fell out of favour and spent the final half of last season in Italy with AC Milan.
He started 36 games for Everton, with a further 39 from the bench, scoring eight goals. His contract had been due to run until June 2018.
The Barcelona statement read: “FC Barcelona have activated the buy-back clause for Gerard Deulofeu.
“In the following days, the terms will be agreed with both Everton and the player. Deulofeu’s contract will run until 30 June 2019.”
