Valencia and his former club, Malaga, have also been credited with interest in the 22-year-old who arrived at Everton last summer amid fevered anticipation following his return of 16 goals in 2016-17.
He has struggled for game time and to adapt to the Premier League, however, and made just three starts, with another four in cup competition, scoring just once so far.
The expected arrival of further striking reinforcements this month will increase the competition for Sandro who was left out of the matchday squad altogether on New Year's Day.
Sevilla are said to have approached the Blues with regard to a possible bid for Sandro who cost £5.2m last July.

.. I enjoy a good sing song :)

Expectations were high prior to him joining us, which is why I worry a bit about this Cenk Tosun, he could be another Sandro, but a lot dearer.

Same with Klaassen. Hope he stays and proves himself worthy of a place in the start 11.
Maybe it's just the getting used to fish and chips and bad weather. Might take some time, but..

I think Sandro probably does want a return to Spain, the Premier League is arguably too much for him at his age. Go back to Spain, mature as a person, and then maybe at 26 or 27 have another shot at the Premier League if it arrives.

The legacy of Koeman and Brown Shoes will take years to overcome and at board level we seem to have the most inefficient transfer deal makers in Premier League history.

However he will be off and in all honesty, this Tosun fellow looks every inch the next Sandro, decent at everything and excels in nothing, time will tell?
12 Posted 03/01/2018 at 21:22:36
It would be a shame, because we haven't seen the best of him. He will move and start banging them in.

I actually think Sandro could work at the tip of a front three, with two quick and powerful forwards next to him. It would require getting the right balance in the midfield three though, something we will never achieve with Morgan and Gana near our team.
I'd prefer to keep both Klaassen and Sandro for when we get our preferred manager...
21 Posted 04/01/2018 at 12:39:05
At the same time, for whatever reasons, we have been prepared to not just put up with, but actually laud our two worst defenders for last number of years.
It is no wonder the place is a shambles and legacies have nothing to do with it.

23 Posted 04/01/2018 at 15:17:01
I'm confident that there's a player in there once he gets some confidence and is played off the main striker.

I can just imagine the commentators at the 2026 World Cup talking about him scoring the winner in the final and continually talking about his failed 6 months in England with us. Also, knowing our luck he'll end up being the first 500m player, and they'll say about the failed move to our new stadium as we couldn't afford the 400m costs.
27 Posted 04/01/2018 at 21:47:10
Whilst we haven't really given him a chance. In order for him to look good he needs players around him to do his work, a luxury we don't have.
We don't create enough chances for any striker nevermind someone who looks slight and one paced.
If we have chance to offload for a profit and bring someone else in who will contribute to the first team then so be it.
I won't lose any sleep.
28 Posted 05/01/2018 at 10:02:12
He gave me a tip Rooney to score from outside the box and Henderson to get booked 150/1 on betfred.

If every player has a hard deadline to succeed, especially the younger ones, we would be selling most if not all of our players. There are aspects a player can and should contribute to but when it comes match day time, it is down to the manager to set him and the team up for success. And I've not seen that when it comes to Sandro yet.
31 Posted 06/01/2018 at 16:50:26
It'll take time to improve that. If he does go, it would be safe to judge that the management reckon he won't cut it even when that happens. If he doesn't, that says something about how we intend to play. Less about banging the ball across and more about more rapid, clever movement. The same could be said about Klaassen if someone makes an offer.
32 Posted 06/01/2018 at 18:26:10
I would hate for us to let him go, like you and many have said without giving him a decent chance; then again... do we have the time to wait and see if it works out?
I think the compromise would be either a loan, with a set price of say £25M, should they wish to retain him, or a straight £25M now, and just hope he doesn't prove to be a Worldbeater.
Talking of transfers, I was reading on the Internet that a bookie in London has had a punter stake £8,000 on Theo Walcott joining Everton, he is so sure that this is going to happen, and they have given odds of 8/1. I wouldn't mind him at the right price; he has got speed and goals in him.
We have been too soft with transfers let's start to sell for a profit.
33 Posted 06/01/2018 at 20:57:59
So we have Sandro, Tosun, Niasse, Calvert-Lewin and Rooney so we have plenty of striker options now and we just need to be coached again how to attack and create chances. Now Ross has gone, Klassen will see more game time.
34 Posted 08/01/2018 at 03:30:11
Why the hell aren't they starting in the U23s regularly, so they can build up game time and rediscover some form and allow them to adjust?
How are are they supposed to have no game time and then come in with under 20 mins to play and perform?

I hope both Sandro and Klaassen are at least given a chance until the summer.
40 Posted 08/01/2018 at 21:34:48
I know Klaassen have received a lot of stick, but I always saw him playing as if he still had real professionals around him! Sadly, they were not there, and his first-touch passes in midfield went nowhere in the end. He's not a ball-fondler (sorry...) like Schneiderlin, he is a mid-point who wants to quickly hit passes to forward-moving teammates! We haven't had too many of those around this season, so I really wish he'll have more time as our team improves in general!

Plus, this team is a total offensive mess and any attacking player is going to suffer for results. I think what I just wrote could be applied to Klaassen as well.
