Everton have completed the signing of Malaga striker Sandro Ramirez.
The Spain U21 international becomes the club’s fourth arrival of the summer.
Everton activated his £5.25m release clause with the La Liga side and have finalised the deal following the European U21 Championships.
Atletico Madrid were keen but their transfer ban put Everton in pole position and the striker has penned a four-year deal at Goodison.
“I know I’m signing for a massive club in England. Everton is the ideal place for me, I’ve got the ideal manager who is going to keep giving me the confidence to improve my game,” he said.
Everton have made some big signings and we’re hoping we can put in a great season and hopefully then we can achieve that aim of getting in the Champions League. It will be a big season for us.
“I was lucky enough to play with some of the best players in the world and managed to win the odd trophy but the important thing now is that I’m very happy to be signing for Everton. We’ve got a fantastic squad and I’m excited about being able to compete at Everton and win plenty of silverware.”
Boss Ronald Koeman added: “We have been trying to bring in good players so we can have greater productivity in the team and he will bring that. He will bring a lot of good qualities and he’s a really good goalscorer, too.”
