According to Cadena Ser via Sport Witness, Real Valladolid hope to sign Sandro Ramirez permanently after his successful loan spell, but the club director Miguel Ángel Gómez believes Everton’s asking price for the 24-year-old is too high.

Sandro fell down the pecking order at Everton in 2018 and has no future at Goodison Park, but the Toffees have struggled to sell him as he’s underperformed in previous loans spells and has lofty salary demands (£3.38m-a-year/£65k-a-week) that don’t justify it.

Everton's Cenk Tosun reacts to a missed chance v Southampton

Which club did Everton loan Cenk Tosun out to in January?

The 24-year-old joined Everton from Malaga in 2017 and has gone on to make 16 appearances in all competitions, scoring one goal. Sandro’s toils on Merseyside led to him joining Sevilla (18 games, 0 goals), Real Sociedad (26 games, 0 goals) and Valladolid (21 games, four goals, 1 assist).

His form at Valladolid has them interested in a permanent move, but Gomez can’t match Everton’s demands. He told Cadena Ser via Pucela Fichajes: “Sandro belongs to Everton, and (… ) they intend to transfer him for around 5-6 million. Those are figures that Real Valladolid cannot afford.”

With Richarlison, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Moise Kean ahead in the pecking order, Sandro is expected to leave this summer. Everton will need to negotiate with Valladolid, however, as the Spanish side may not make an official bid and the Toffees will be stuck with more deadwood.
