Sandro Ramirez has struggled to impress since swapping Malaga for Everton in 2017.

Earlier in January, he was loaned to Sevilla and in the summer Real Sociedad took him on a temporary deal, but the striker has failed to find the back of the net in all competitions for both the clubs.

The 23-year-old’s last goal was for Everton in the Europa League clash against Atalanta in November 2017 and his last league goal was in the May of that same year for Malaga against Celta Vigo.

Spanish newspaper El Norte de Castilla explains the former Barcelona man’s poor stats has seen him not score a goal in the league for close to 21 months and his situation ‘deserves a separate chapter’ when speaking about Real Sociedad’s problems.

The report mentions about the attacker when they talk about La Real’s poor goalscoring record in the league and mention the Toffees loanee joins Adnan Januzaj as the forwards yet to open their goalscoring account.

El Gol Digital pinpoints that coaches have decided to play him behind the striker or in the wide positions instead of playing as a number nine, despite the player repeatedly insisting he’s an out and out goalscorer’

The Spanish outlet suggests this is the reason Sandro has struggled to find the back of the net and the player also admitted that things wwill be easier once he ends his drought.

“I am a player who demands a lot from myself. I live on the goal and I need it. Now you have to work hard and when the first goal comes, everything will be easier,” Sandro was quoted as saying by Mundo Deportivo.

None of this is good for Everton’s transfer of a reasonable transfer fee.
