Everton man reportedly being eyed for senior national team call up

According to Liverpool Echo, Spanish Newspapers report that Everton striker Sandro Ramirez could receive his first senior team call up for Spain in the first round of internationals of the season.

The ex-Malaga man, 22, has been a regular part of Spain’s youth teams since his Barcelona academy days, and did lead the attack for the squad that emerged runners-up at the European Under-21 Football Championship in June.

However, with Diego Costa likely to be without a club until January, opportunity could be handed to Sandro to make his national team bow.

Spain national team manager Julen Lopetegui is reportedly keeping an eye on his progress at Everton, and his goal against Sevilla on Sunday would have impressed the gaffer.

Sandro has 28 goals for Spain’s youth teams, while he has registered 16 career league goals – with 14 of those coming in 30 La Liga games for Malaga last term.

While there are high expectations of him as he tries to fill Romelu Lukaku’s shoes at Goodison Park, the hunger and desire to also impress Lopetegui as well, and establish himself in the team ahead of Russia 2018 are more than enough to inspire him into firing on all cylinders.
