Everton forward Sandro Ramirez has asked the English club to hurry his exit in the January transfer window, according to ABC de Sevilla.
The 22-year-old former Barcelona man arrived in Liverpool over the summer after gaining the admiration of then boss Ronald Koeman.
Koeman has since been axed from his role at Goodison Park, but the Spanish winger’s chances of playing have not changed, prompting speculation over his future.
Everton, who paid the £5m release clause set by Andalusian side Malaga; have struggled this season, although results have improved under Sam Allardyce.
Sandro, who netted an impressive 14 goals in 28 league games last season in La Liga – has made just 11 appearances and failed to score, prompting fans of the English club to cast doubt over his ability.
Reports in Estadio Deportivo and Cadena COPE earlier this month claimed that Sevilla are ready to take advantage of his lack of playing time, making tentative calls to his agent.
However, nothing has materialised with the Andalusian club looking at other options, such as Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi.
Another potential move for Sandro is back to Malaga, who have struggled for goals since his departure and sit rock bottom the La Liga standings after 11 rounds.
