Why Sandro Ramirez Would Be A Great Addition For Everton
It has been a busy summer for Everton FC having already made two major signings in the form of £30million goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and Ajax FC captain and Davy Klaassen who cost the club £25million. But that’s just not it, The Toffees are also believed to be close to completing their third signing this summer in the form of former Barcelona centre forward, Sandro Ramirez, who has a £5.2million release clause.
The 21-year-old Spaniard enjoyed an exceptional season with Celta Vigo last term, notching up 16 goals and 5 assists in 31 games for the La Liga side. This seems to have been enough for Everton to turn their attention towards the talented La Liga attacker.
£5.2million for a 21-year-old with 15 goals in a league like La Liga would be an absolute steal for the Merseyside club. Sandro Ramirez could well turn out to be one of the signings of the summer if he does get regular first team football. Looking at Romelu Lukaku’s situation, the 21-year-old could be the club’s first-choice striker come the start of the season.
Stats and potential aside, Sandro Ramirez possesses something that Everton fans can relate to, which is passion. With the lack of first team football, the youngster decided to leave Camp Nou leaving behind a team with Champions League football and players like Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar just for the sake of more game time.
His move to Malaga turned out to be the right decision as he straightaway started in 31 games, scoring 16 goals, thereby getting the attention of Ronald Koeman and Everton FC. During these times where young and upcoming footballers fetch upwards of £60million in the transfer market, Sandro Ramirez can be described as value for money. As the new season approaches, Sandro Ramirez can be counted as one of the young prospects to look out for in the Premier League.
Although it remains to be seen if he can live up to his potential, the transfer does seem to be ticking all the right boxes. With two big signings in the span of two weeks, the Toffees are raising the stakes for rival clubs in the Premier League and a thrid one would go a long way in sending out a stronger message. The way Ronald Koeman is shaping up his squad for this season, fans can expect the most competitive season the Premier League has seen in its history.
