Everton have reportedly completed the signing of striker Sandro Ramirez from Malaga on a five-year deal.

The Toffees are believed to have met the 21-year-old’s buy-out clause of £5.25m, taking their impressive spending so far this summer past £60m.

The 21-year-old joined Barcelona’s youth set-up aged 14 before going on to make 17 senior appearances for the club, scoring twice.

Following his release from the Nou Camp a year ago, Ramirez joined Malaga where he enjoyed a breakthrough season in La Liga, scoring 14 times and providing three assists from 30 appearances.

Sandro had previously been linked with Atletico Madrid and Juventus so his addition is a real coup for Ronald Koeman’s men.

Ramirez becomes Everton’s fourth signing of the summer, joining Jordan Pickford, Davy Klaassen and Henry Onyekuru, while Burnley’s Michael Keane is also close to completing his £25m switch to Goodison Park.
