Who is Sandro Ramirez and can he really replace Romelu Lukaku?

With everything but the official announcement and the video recorded by ToffeeTV a year ago coming out, Evertonians have heard a lot about Sandro Ramirez signing at Goodison Park this week.

But what can the former Barcelona striker – who apparently modelled his game on David Villa – bring to the party at Everton?

The answer, it would seem, is goals.  Lots of goals.

The young striker bagged 14 goals in 30 games for Malaga last season, chipping in with three assists too.  Not quite Lukaku figures, but then Sandro has time on his side.  He’s a full three years younger than Lukaku.

At 21, young Sandro also seems to being a very positive influence to his team.

When he played, Malaga were almost three times as likely to win as they were without him in the side.

At just over £5m being reported as the fee to bring Sandro to Goodison Park, and with plenty of time on his side, the Spanish centre forward could prove to be a masterstroke of a signing. (image courtesy of KickOff)
