Sandro Ramirez has been made available for sale by Everton, but the 24-year-old has proven a difficult player to offload. Real Valladolid signed Sandro on loan last summer but didn’t include a buying option, so Everton will have to locate a suitor willing to procure his signature on a permanent deal this summer.

The Spaniard has 18 months remaining on his contract, so he could leave Everton on a free transfer at the end of next season if they fail to cash in before. Sandro has been in poor form over the last three years, so it’s hard to see many clubs lodging bids – three goals in his last 80 appearances isn’t going to attract a lot of interest.

Everton paid £5.3m to sign Sandro in 2017 and have spent £11.3m on his wages, but they’re unlikely to get much of that money back through his sale – Getting Sandro off the wage bill this summer would save Everton more than £3m, however.

With only two goals in 18 games for Valladolid this season, it’s unlikely the Spaniards will turn Sandro’s loan move permanent, so Everton will need to put out feelers to see if there’s any interest.

Where will Everton finish in the Premier League?
