Everton eye striker move
Everton are set to spend a chunk of the fee received for Jack Rodwell on Olympiakos striker Kevin Mirallas.
The Toffees sold England midfielder Rodwell to Manchester City for £12million on Sunday, allowing boss David Moyes some much needed leeway in the transfer market. The Scot is keen on bolstering his midfield as well as bringing in a striker to support Croatia star Nikica Jelavic. Versatile Mirallas can play in both positions and appears to have risen to the top of Everton's wanted list. The Belgium international is reportedly set to fly over to Merseyside in order to thrash out personal terms and undergo a medical in the coming days. The 24-year-old, who is set to play for his country against Holland in Brussels on Wednesday, was top scorer in the Greek League last season, scoring 20 goals to help Olympiakos retain the title. He revealed on Monday that he was keen on a move to the Premier League, with Arsenal reportedly in pole position to sign him. However, Everton appear to have nudged ahead in the race to sign the £5.3million-rated forward, who is an international team-mate of Toffees midfielder Marouane Fellaini. He would become Everton's third signing of the summer following the arrival of Steven Naismith from Rangers and Steven Pienaar from Tottenham.
