With new Director of Football Marcel Brands and manager Marco Silva hard at work planning for the season ahead, one clear message from both men in recent times was that a number of sales would have to take place purely from having a far more practical number in the first-team squad.

Silva Will Have To Make His Own Gold As Purse Strings Tighten At Everton

Despite being under contract until the summer of 2020, Kevin Mirallas is one man who has fallen out of favour in recent years and he spent the second half of last season out on loan with Olympiakos. The Liverpool Echo have reported that he set for talks with the management over his future in the coming couple of weeks.

With a 38 man squad and a reported £139million wage bill, 30-year-old Mirallas is far from alone in being one of the first go-to departures this summer and for many fans, they feel it should be a quick meeting with the decision extremely easy to make.

Some fans were a little more forgiving in their summation of his time with us, believing it was more a deal that didn’t work out for both parties – even if Mirallas could’ve done more on that score.

Having signed from Olympiakos for £6million back in 2012, we’d unlikely recoup that fee, but anything that chips away at our initial outlay could certainly be better reinvested by Silva as he stamps his mark on the side this summer.
