Ramirez has now become Ronald Koeman’s fourth recruit of the summer as the Toffees strengthen their squad ahead of the upcoming season which sees them return to the continental football in the Europa League.
The three-times Spain Under-21 international joins Jordan Pickford, Davy Klaassen and Henry Onyekuru in agreeing to join the exciting project that Koeman is overseeing on the blue half of Merseyside.
Everton fans took to Twitter after the announcement was made and are clearly excited by Ramirez’s arrival, with one supporter saying that the low amount spent on him is “daylight robbery”.
Here is a selection of their tweets:

Lukaku could take a few lessons in class from Sandro. Signed on 21st June but told media at under 21s in Poland he knew nothing about it.

It is now understood that Everton’s summer spending has gone above £60million after Ramirez’s arrival was announced.
He comes to Goodison Park off the back of a brilliant season at Malaga, scoring 16 goals in 31 appearances after he was released by Barcelona.
