Real Sociedad are confident of completing the signing of Everton striker Sandro Ramirez on a season-long loan deal.
The Basque club’s president Jokin Aperribay told Cadena Cope that they were expecting the former Barcelona youth graduate to join the club at the end of the week.
“The reports of a deal being close for him (Sandro) are true, we have an agreement with Everton too,” Aperribay said.
“The idea is for a loan without a purchase option and the deal should be done this week.”
The 23-year-old netted just one goal in 15 appearances for The Toffees following last summer switch from Malaga, before joining Sevilla in January.
Once more the move did not prove successful with Sandro not managing to find the net in seven starts at the Andalusian club.
The striker scored 14 goals in 30 La Liga appearances in the 2016/17 season for Malaga after joining from Barcelona.
