Everton have completed the move for Spain Under-21 international Sandro Ramirez. The striker spent last season at Malaga after joining from Barcelona, and he has now penned a four-year deal with the Toffees.
‘I bring a lot of youthful enthusiasm. My key strength is goalscoring’, the Spaniard said, also declaring he has joined the ‘ideal club and ideal manager’.
‘I’m very happy, this is a big step in my career,” Sandro told Everton TV. “I know I’m signing for a massive club in England. Everton is the ideal place for me, I’ve got the ideal manager who is going to keep giving me the confidence to improve my game’.
‘I cannot wait to wear the blue shirt in front of the Everton fans at Goodison Park. It’s a big jump in my career coming to the Premier League and for a club like Everton which is really on the up. They have got big plans and want to succeed and keep developing. I’m hoping I can get to know my teammates as soon as possible, and want to adapt to the football and the way of life in the city’.
‘Everton have made some big signings and we’re hoping we can put in a great season and hopefully then we can achieve that aim of getting in the Champions League. It will be a big season for us’.
‘I was lucky enough to play with some of the best players in the world and managed to win the odd trophy but the important thing now is that I’m very happy to be signing for Everton. We’ve got a fantastic squad and I’m excited about being able to compete at Everton and win plenty of silverware’.
He pointed to the influence of boss Ronald Koeman in making the switch to Merseyside: ‘The biggest attraction is the confidence already shown in me by people at the Club’, he added. ‘I’m really excited at having the chance to work with the manager, Ronald Koeman. He has shown a lot of faith in me and was very influential in my decision to come here, as were other people at the Club, especially the Chairman, Bill Kenwright, and Steve Walsh’, Sandro concluded.
