According to reports in The Times, Everton are believed to be closing in on a £5.1m deal for Malaga forward Sandro Ramirez.
Ronald Koeman is keen to strengthen his Toffees squad in order for them to challenge for the top four in the Premier League next season, and he looks to be on the verge of making his first signing of the summer.
With Arouna Kone on his way out, Enner Valencia set to return to West Ham following a loan spell and Romelu Lukaku’s future still in doubt, the Merseyside outfit certainly need some attacking reinforcements.
The 21-year-old has been in fine form for the La Liga outfit this term following a move from Barcelona last summer, and he has scored 16 goals and provided a further four assists in 29 appearances in all competitions.
Everton supporters were quick to have their say on the latest rumour via social media, and they believe the Spaniard could prove to be a bargain buy.

If Ramirez is coming to #EFC then Lukaku is off. He's not coming here to play second fiddle.

Sandro for 5 million would be excellent business whoever he signs for #EFC ideally need 2 strikers/wide forwards even if lukaku stays
