Valencia target out of form Everton striker

Valencia eye Everton striker for January loan

Bengaluru, December 1: High-flying La Liga side Valencia are set to offer Sandro Ramirez an escape route from Everton in January.

The Spanish striker joined Everton from Malaga in the summer when the Toffees triggered his £5.2million release fee but since then, he has found it hard to adapt to life in English football.

The 22-year-old started just three Premier League games at the start of the season and has managed just two goals in 13 appearances overall.

He was an unused substitute in the last two league games against West Ham and Southampton.

And, according to reports in Spanish media, Los Ches are watching for the former Barcelona man, who netted 14 goals in 30 La Liga matches last season.

While Sandro fell behind Oumar Niasse and Dominic Calvert-Lewin under caretaker boss David Unsworth, he could leap to the front of the queue to start in attack under new boss Sam Allardyce but the job does not look easy at all.

Sam Allardyce likes a powerful presence up front and could very well use Sandro as the focal point to his attack but his form for the Toffees might make it hard.

Allardyce was in the stands at Goodison Park last night to watch the 4-0 win over West Ham and was announced as the new manager on Thursday.

Sandro is only 22-years-old and his poor start to English football does not mean that he will not succeed here.

A great number of players have found it difficult to set the stage on fire right after their move to England from abroad as the game is much different here and the intensity demands much extra to thrive.

Valencia being interested in the 22-year-old will surely help the player as he would know that he is still highly regarded in his homeland but he should focus on doing well for Everton, the club he joined this summer.
