It would be fair to say that Everton forward Sandro Ramirez has not had the best of luck since joining the Merseyside club.
When Everton triggered a reported (BBC Sport) £5.2 million release clause to sign the Malaga striker in 2017 it seemed they had grabbed a bargain.
But he struggled to settle at Everton and has spent unsuccessful loan spells at both Sevilla and Real Sociedad over the past two seasons.
This summer, Everton again shifted him on loan. Sandro headed to Real Valladolid, but so far his fortunes have not changed.
Sandro failed to score a single goal during his spell at the Anoeta last season and that run continues. He is yet to score in his six games for the club this campaign. It means the striker’s last goal remains the consolation for Everton in a 5-1 Europa League thrashing against Atalanta in November 2017.
It now appears as though Sandro will be stretching to a full two years without a goal, as he is reportedly injured.
Fichajes reports that he is expected to miss the next three weeks of action through injury as he continues his wretched run of form.
Everton fans will be hoping Sandro can get back to form as soon as possible. Not only so they can try and find a buyer for his services on a permanent basis, but just to break the duck in what is clearly a tough spell for the 24-year-old.
