Olympiacos star Kevin Mirallas is set to complete a move to English Premier League club Everton.
The Belgium international will move for a fee that has been quoted at around £5.3 million by various media outlets in England and will fly in for a medical with the Merseyside club today (Thursday).
After spending two highly successful season in Piraeus, the 24 year-old striker is unsurprisingly looking forward to the challenge of playing in England.
“Moving to England would be good for me,” Mirallas said. “It would be good for my family and a good opportunity.”
His departure leaves new Olympiacos boss Leonardo Jardim with something of a headache however ahead of the new Greek Super League season; Mirallas has was the league’s top-scorer his team won the domestic double earlier this year and has been their attacking talisman since joining from Saint-Etienne.
It remains to be seen whether Jardim will put his faith in the squad’s three remaining strikers: Brazilian Diogo, Algerian Rafik Djebbour and Greece international Konstantinos Mitroglou, while he will also need to fend off continuing interest in full-back Vasilis Torosidis.
