Flight booked: Everton set to hold talks with 16-goal attacher - report
By Derek Smithson
Everton will hold discussions with Malaga attacker Sandro Ramirez on Monday, according to a report.
The Daily Mail claim that the 21-year-old is set to fly into Liverpool on Monday to hold talks about a Premier League move.
It is understood that the Toffees are set to agree a £5.2million transfer for the Spaniard after a proposed move to Atletico Madrid collapsed due to their transfer ban.
The report details that Sandro is excited to work with manager Ronald Koeman and the Merseyside club will be delighted to activate his low buy-out clause at a bargain price.
Sandro was in sensational form for La Liga side Malaga last season, scoring 16 goals and supplying five assists in just 31 appearances.

He was previously on the books with Spanish giants Barcelona and graduated from their famous academy.
Koeman has made sure European football has returned to Goodison Park next season and will want summer reinforcements to add to his capable squad.
Football Insider verdict:
Everton need to bring in top-class signings if they are to break into the top six next season and Sandro could be the perfect answer. The Toffees were perhaps too heavily reliant on star striker Romelu Lukaku last season for goals and could do with more contributions all over the pitch. Sandro predominately plays through the centre of attack, but his speed has helped him be a winger if needed. He has enjoyed a brilliant season in La Liga and at 21 looks set to become a great player. The £5.2million price could easily see him become the bargain of the summer if he can hit the ground running in English football. He’s fast, direct, and an absolute no-brainer for Everton to complete a deal for.
