Kevin Mirallas has revealed that he’s ready for a “new challenge” and Champions League football, opening the door for a summer move away from Everton.
The Belgian arrived at Goodison Park from Olympiakos in 2012 and has since earned rave reviews for his performances on Merseyside.
Mirallas played a key role in the Toffees’ impressive 2013/14 season, although his showings were not quite enough to get the club over the line and into the top four.
And with Everton’s start to the current campaign having been a poor one, Spurs have been linked with a move for his signature.
Mirallas – who has just under 18 months left to run on his contract – was aligned with a cut-price £5m deadline day switch to White Hart Lane, and although the proposed deal did not come off, he says that he’s willing to leave the club, but that Champions League football is his aim:
“There have been offers and enquiries, but no real negotiations. January isn’t the ideal month for a transfer,” he is quoted by The Express.
“I have never said I absolutely want to leave Everton.
“I like it over here, but I feel ready for a new challenge.
“I dream of playing in the Champions League next season. With Everton or with another club. I just have to see after the season.”
