Having spent big money on both Richarlison and Lucas Digne, Everton are now trying to balance the books with a host of player exits.
And one individual who is expected to fall into that category is Kevin Mirallas.
According to Sky Sports, Mirallas is set to join Serie A outfit Fiorentina on a loan deal as the Toffees look to cut down their wage bill.
Mirallas took to the Premier League well, but in the last couple of seasons his performances have dropped off massively and he has since had a loan spell with Greek side Olympiacos — the team he initially joined Everton from.
With the arrival of Richarlison and the possible addition of another winger, now is a good time for Everton to part ways with £6.3m-rated (via Transfermarkt) Mirallas, who has been underperforming at the club for some time now.
Take a look at what Everton fans are saying on Mirallas’ imminent departure here…
I’ll book his plane for him if he wants..

Mirallas always has a terrible attitude. I guess Silvas double training sessions highlighted his commitment (or lack of) along with Martina and Williams… glad to see the back of all of them #EFC

Williams, Martina and Mirallas look to be going in the same window. I don’t care what anyone says, that’s a successful transfer window #efc
