The Barcelona youngster has been favouriting tweets asking for his return, and getting pally with Romelu Lukaku on Instagram. Is a return on the cards?

When it comes to hopes and dreams, social media is a dangerous yet wonderful place.

And if the latest goings on are any indication of summer plans, Everton fans may be in for a treat. Yes, Gerard Deulofeu may be returning to Goodison Park once again.

The Barcelona youngster is set to finish his loan spell at Sevilla soon, but a first-team spot at Barca seems unlikely to come around given the form of Messi, Suarez and Neymar, and the added competition of Pedro to boot.

That has led to rumours a move may be the best option for his long-term future, and the Catalan has decided to fan the flames in Everton's favour with his social media moves of late.

You see, not only has he been favouriting tweets asking for his return, he's also been getting in on the act with the current squad as well, with him and Romelu Lukaku now best of friends on Instagram.

In fact, the Belgian may have been giving his own insight into it all, with a very familiar celebration against West Ham at the weekend.

Frankly, you've got to take it all with a pinch of salt. Just because players are following each other on Twitter doesn't mean it's a done deal, nor does Deulofeu's favouriting of tweets.

If though (and it's a big if) the Blues were to secure a deal, you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who'd complain about it. The young Spaniard is quick, skilful and a bright prospect for the future. For now, we'll stay calm about it all, but there's no harm in dreaming. He is magic afterall.
