It looks like Sandro Ramírez's time with Barcelona is coming to an end, and suitors are already making offers.

According to reports from Diario Sport and Mundo Deportivo, the young striker was formally approached by La Liga club Real Bétis, who have identified Sandro as the attacking answer for a team battling relegation this season. Tottenham Hotspur have also been linked as they look for a backup to star striker Harry Kane, but Spurs have not made a formal offer yet.

Sandro has gone down the pecking order even more this season at Barça. The 20-year-old saw less and less playing time with the establishment of the 'MSN' trio and the signings of Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal who can play up front. Munir El-Haddadi has improved lately, and is also above Ramírez in the depth chart. Seeing that waiting for chances at Catalunya could take a long time, Sandro has decided to leave, and the next eleven days of the January window could be his last as a Blaugrana.

Barça prefer not to sell the player to a league rival, instead waiting for the Premier League to come with a real offer. Either way, we might have seen the last of Sandro at Barça.
