Everton forward Sandro is being monitored by La Liga club Valencia as they get set to make the player their top January target. as reported by Sport Witness.

The Everton summer signing has struggled to adapt to the Premier League and could leave as early as next month to head back to Spain.

As recent as last week a meeting was called by the Valenica board as they looked to sustain their strong start in La Liga and have made plans for Sandro’s arrival.
