After less than half a season in English football, Sandro Ramirez’s move to Everton has descended into a nightmare.
The Spanish Under-21 international looked an astute signing when Everton triggered the £5.1 million buyout clause in his Malaga contract, per The Independent, but the form that saw Sandro net 14 times in a stunning season at La Rosaleda has been nowhere to be seen so far.
The 22-year-old has made just five goalless Premier League appearances and has not even been included in a single matchday squad since Ronald Koeman was sacked and David Unsworth took over in a caretaker role last month.
And Estadio Deportivo is now reporting that the former Barcelona youngster is understandably unhappy at Goodison Park and is ‘seriously considering’ jumping ship as early as January.
Sevilla are interested in offering Sandro a route back to La Liga via a loan move with an option to buy while high-flying Valencia are also aware of the striker’s plight. If Los Che win the race for Everton’s misfiring number nine, they could boast a trio of Premier League flops in their frontline.
Simone Zaza failed to score a single goal during that infamous eight game loan spell at West Ham last season but is in the form of his life since moving to Spain. Only Lionel Messi can better the Italian’s tally of nine goals in 11 league appearances in 2017/18.
Zaza has formed a superb partnership with Rodrigo Moreno in La Liga’s second placed side. The former Real Madrid youngster, who scored one goal in 17 games on loan at Bolton in 2010/11, was recently rewarded with a first Spain cap in three years after netting seven times in ten starts for Valencia.
Sandro may be hoping that a move to Valencia could give him a fresh lease of life too.
