Everton set to sign Sandro

Everton are reportedly set to sign Malaga striker Sandro Ramirez for €6m, beating off competition from Atletico Madrid.

According to reports in Spain and England, Sandro was unwilling to join Atleti in January due to their ban on registering new players.

Consequently, the Under-21 international has decided to pursue a career with the Toffees, who are likely to sell Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea.

AS claims a deal for around €100m will be agreed between the two clubs, with the Premier League champions hoping to replace Diego Costa.

Sandro signed for Malaga last summer after his release by Barcelona and scored 14 La Liga goals during his debut campaign at La Rosaleda.

Marca adds the 21-year-old has already passed a medical with Everton and that his move to Merseyside will be announced in the next 48 hours.
