West Ham joined by French pair in race for Everton star

West Ham United will face tough competition from Monaco and Marseille in their efforts to sign Everton star Kevin Mirallas, Express reports.

The 28-year-old has been struggling to hold down a regular role ever since the start of the current campaign despite deciding to sign a new deal in the summer.

Mirallas is now being tipped for an exit given that his lack of playing time could affect his chances of getting selected for the Belgium national team ahead of Euro 2016.

His plea for a regular role looks to have alerted a number of clubs to his potential availability after the winger came out to voice his concerns heading into the January window.

“It’s not easy to live such a situation but it happens like that in the world of football,” he said.

“I don’t think in terms of my place in the national team.

“But in January, if my situation has not changed, I will ask questions and perhaps consider a departure.”

The attacker looks to have lost his place after a number of convincing displays from Gerard Deulofeu as the race for his services could heat up when the transfer market reopens.

He has only managed to register one Premier League start this term, appearing as a substitute on six other occasions so far.
