Everton have signed Spanish striker Sandro Ramirez from Spanish side Malaga on a four-year deal, the Premier League club said on Monday.

“This is a big step in my career,” Sandro said in a statement. “Everton is the ideal club for me, I’ve got the ideal manager who is going to keep giving me the confidence to improve my game.”

“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.”
