Last week Sevilla were brought back into the ‘race’ to sign Sandro Ramirez from Everton.

Half of La Liga have been linked with the former Barcelona and Malaga player but there hasn’t yet been a club ready to make a real effort to sign him, either on loan or a permanent transfer.

Sevilla’s return to the story was said to be related to a difficulty signing other strikers and an impatience with the market, but even that feels like it’s going cold once again.

AS report on Monday that Sandro is an option because of his ‘desire’ for an Everton transfer this month, but they don’t sound too excited about the prospect.

It’s fair to say the idea of signing Sandro isn’t plastered all over Sevilla’s local press, and other targets seem to be taking prominence.

Over the weekend it was reported in Spain that Everton are asking for a £500k loan fee and for a club to pay all of Sandro’s £80k per week wages, or negotiate their own personal terms with the player.

That sounds entirely reasonable but no Spanish club have been keen enough yet, it’s only Sandro’s desire for a Spain return which keeps the story going.
