In Focus: Sandro Ramirez must depart on loan for the good of his career

According to AS, via talkSPORT, Valencia are in talks with Everton to sign Sandro Ramirez. The Spaniard has endured a difficult time as a Toffee since his transfer from Malaga at the start of the season, and it is believed that the former Barcelona forward is keen on a return to his home country.

What’s the story?

Since joining Everton in the summer, Sandro has only played 275 minutes of football in the Premier League, and it is no surprise that the Spaniard is keen to depart Goodison Park.

However, reportedly, Everton aren’t so keen on selling the striker in the forthcoming January transfer window. Thus, no agreement has been reached as of yet, between Everton and Valencia.

It is rumoured that Everton are eager to sign a striker in the January Window. Therefore one can appreciate why the Toffees aren’t keen on depleting Big Sam’s attacking options without securing a replacement.

Should he go?

The Barcelona academy graduate has only scored one goal in 15 games for the Toffees this season. This contrasts starkly with Ramirez’ ratio of a goal every two games for Malaga last season, where he scored 16 goals in 31 games.

It is evident that Sandro is devoid of confidence and consistent first-team involvement. At the age of 22, he requires both things to prolong his progression. Thus he must move in the upcoming window.

Nonetheless, Everton should recognise that they have a player who is endowed with substantial potential, and they just need to ensure that he can adapt to the physically gruelling demands of Premier League life.

A loan move would be the most appropriate avenue for all options to pursue as Sandro looks to revive his career.
