Kevin Mirallas has an uncertain future at Everton, with the 31-year-old having been loaned out to Fiorentina last summer as he was deemed surplus to requirements. Mirallas struggled for playing time at Goodison Park last season and re-joined former club Olympiacos (January 8, 2018 – June 30, 2018) midway through the campaign in bid for more minutes.

He was sent to Florence just one month after his return to Everton and Sport Witness have revealed that his agent is trying to drum up interest for next season. Mirallas is reportedly happy in Italy and keen to turn his loan deal permanent, but there’s also interest from Galatasaray manager Fatih Terim.

The Belgian international has made 20 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring and creating five goals. Mirallas has struggled with minor injuries during his time with the Violas, but he’s mostly been a regular when fit. Everton paid only £6m for the 31-year-old in 2012, so his asking price shouldn’t scare clubs off.

Transfermarkt say his market value is £5.85m while Capology believe he’s worth £5.6m. According to Spotrac, Mirallas earns £3.6m-a-year/£70k-per-week at Everton, so any interested club would have to pay in excess of £10m to sign the winger for a couple of seasons. Fiorentina and Galatasaray may enter a bidding war for his signature.
