Deulofeu has now revealed his future ambitions by stating that he would eventually want to develop into a more central role similar to how Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has successfully done in his career.
The Spaniard said: "Maybe there are little things yes, but we're different in a lot of others. Cristiano has a lot to his game — he's good in the air, his shooting is perfect, his left foot perfect. And he's more of a striker now — a No 9.
"I'm a winger but in the future I want to play more in the middle.
"When you're there you have a lot more opportunities to score. I would like to be like him, though, start wide and go in middle, as a No 10 or 9. At Barca B I played No 9 and think I played well. If you are there, you have more chance to make a bigger impact.
"I don't say you're not involved on the wing, or I don't like it, because I do. But for me it's possible to play No 10 or 9 in the future."
