Everton boss David Moyes opens talks with £5.3m Kevin Mirallas
Thursday 16 August 2012
Everton are in talks with Olympiakos to secure a £5.3m deal for Belgium's Kevin Mirallas. The striker, 24, can play both up front and out wide, and caught the eye with 20 goals in 25 appearances last season.
David Moyes, the Everton manager, is looking to strengthen his squad further after the permanent signing of Steven Pienaar and free transfer of Steven Naismith. The move for Mirallas follows the sale of midfielder Jack Rodwell, who joined Manchester City for £12m on Sunday.
Mirallas, who has scored seven times for Belgium and has had spells with Lille and Saint-Etienne, helped Olympiakos to the Greek league championship last season
