Kevin Mirallas doesn’t appear to have a future at Everton and is expected to be sold if a club match his asking price before September. The Belgian international has spent the last 18 months on loan at Olympiacos (January 8, 2018 – June 30, 2018) and Fiorentina (August 4, 2018 – June 30, 2019) but didn’t do enough to earn himself a permanent deal at either club.

His next destination is still currently unknown, but Voetbal24 believe the 31-year-old will ‘almost certainly’ leave Everton in the coming weeks and ‘could return to Belgium’. The report mentions Anderlecht, Standard Liege, Club Brugge, AA Gent, Antwerp and KRC Genk as potential suitors, but there have been no offers for Everton to consider.

Since joining from Olympiacos in 2012, Mirallas has gone on to make 186 appearances in all competitions, scoring and creating 72 goals. His last outing for the Toffees came against Southampton on November 26, 2017. The experienced wide-man finds himself behind Theo Walcott, Richarlison, Bernard and Alex Iwobi in the pecking order and may be forced to leave to get minutes elsewhere.

It’s been 16 years since Mirallas departed the Belgian Jupiler Pro League, having left Standard Liege for LOSC Lille in 2003.
