Kevin Mirallas has an uncertain future at Everton after struggling for playing time in the last two seasons and could be on the move this summer. Phil Kirkbride of the Liverpool Echo says Everton could offload the out-of-favour winger when the campaign comes to a close.
After falling down the pecking order at Goodison Park, the 31-year-old joined Olympiacos on loan (15 appearances) in 2017/18 and Fiorentina (26 appearances) in 2018/19. With Marcel Brands wanting to lower the average age, it’s hard to see Mirallas remaining at Everton for another season.
The Belgian international has made 186 appearances in all competitions since joining Everton in 2012, scoring and creating 72 goals. Mirallas’ last outing for the Toffees came against Southampton on November 26, 2017 and it doesn’t appear he’ll make another. His contract at Everton expires in the summer of 2020.
Fiorentina have an option to buy Mirallas this summer and may have to pay around £5m to procure his signature. According to Spotrac, the 31-year-old earns £3.6m-a-year/£70k-per-week at Goodison Park. With the winger contributing only three goals in 23 Serie A games for Fiorentina this season, it remains to be seen if they’ll turn his loan deal permanent.
