Everton have turned down a bid from Spanish La Liga side Real Betis for striker Sandro Ramirez, according to a report.
The Daily Star revealed that the side, who hail from Seville, are keen on taking the Toffees misfit on a loan deal.
However, Sam Allardyce is not keen on accepting Betis’ offer of a loan deal and wants a permanent move in order to fund further transfers within the club.
The manager is in no rush though, and Big Sam is willing to hold out for a suitable offer in order to make a profit on the Spanish U21 international.
There were great expectations of Ramirez when he arrived at Goodison Park in the summer for a £5.2million fee under Ronald Koeman’s reign but it has not worked out for the 22-year-old who looks to have no future at the club.
Football Insider verdict:
There can be no doubt that Ramirez is out of favour at Goodison. He has, after all, made only 15 outings for the Toffees and scored one goal in that time which is not exactly prolific. The Spanish U21 international has not settled at all in England and it would appear that a move back to Spain would suit all parties but there is a definite sense of unfulfilled potential in a player that is abundantly talented. Ramirez ought to have been given more of a chance to show what he is capable of but in a world where success needs to be instant, it seems he won’t be, and his days with the Blues are coming to an end.
