Report: Kevin Mirallas trying to persuade Roberto Martinez to let him leave Everton; West Ham and Monaco remain interested

Kevin Mirallas Belgium

West Ham and Monaco want to sign Everton’s Kevin Mirallas.

Kevin Mirallas is hoping to leave Everton this month, Belgian media outlet HLN reports.

The Belgian winger has been linked with an exit from Goodison Park since the summer, with him not a guaranteed part of Roberto Martinez’s plans.

The Mirror reported six months ago that the winger had been the subject of a £6 million bid from West Ham, but that offer was rejected by Everton, with Martinez not keen to cash in on him.

However, Mirallas, 28, has started just three league games all season, and he is fearing for his international place with Belgium ahead of Euro 2016 this summer.

He wants to be playing consistent football in the second half of the season, and the report claims he has been holding talks with Martinez to try and convince the head coach to let him leave Merseyside.

There have been no indications that Martinez has accepted such terms, and Mirallas was even included in Everton’s team at the weekend, scoring a fantastic goal in the 3-3 draw with Chelsea.

However, the report claims that the Hammers remain interested in the winger - as well as AS Monaco - and if this start was a one off, Mirallas will continue to push for a move throughout the rest of the transfer window.
