Kevin Mirallas: Set to undergo a medical at Everton

The 24-year-old was also a target of Arsenal but he is expected on Merseyside later this week to discuss the final details of his move to Goodison Park.

Belgium international Mirallas looks set to undergo a medical with Everton on Thursday after his country's friendly against Holland in Brussels on Wednesday.

Everton have money to spend after selling Jack Rodwell to Manchester City and Mirallas would represent half of the initial £12m fee received from the Premier League champions.

Caen forward M'Baye Niang is another potential attacking arrival at Everton and the 17-year-old is understood to be beginning a three-day trial with the club.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have also been linked with Niang, who is said to be valued at £6m.
