Everton confident of beating Tottenham to the signing of Spanish striker

Everton are reportedly confident that they have beaten Tottenham and Sevilla in the race to sign Malaga forward Sandro Ramirez.

The former Barcelona youth product has done well in the La Liga this season, scoring 14 goals – which is the most by a player from a team on the bottom half of the standings.

It will be very unlikely for Malaga to keep hold of the 21-year-old, who joined after failing to establish himself within the first team at Barcelona last season.

The Toffees are reportedly viewing Ramirez as a possible replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who is set to depart the club during the summer.

Ronald Koeman was also spotted at La Rosaleda keeping tabs on the player that has also gained positive feedback from Everton director of football Steve Walsh.

An attractive contract offer as well as the prospect of playing first team football in the Premier League on a regular basis is said to have convinced Sandro to choose Everton.
