Everton forward Kevin Mirallas is set to leave the club to join Fiorentina on loan for the season, despite playing a big part in the pre-season preparations.
Rumours filtered out of Finch Farm that Mirallas had been told not to train with the first team this week – along with several others, including Ashley Williams – and now his future is in even more doubt.
After bagging five goals in Austria, Mirallas struggled to look much more interested than he has in the last three seasons at Everton during pre-season, and Marco Silva is ready to offload him.
Attitude questions have followed Mirallas throughout his Everton career, and he was sent home from training in January by David Unsworth for showing very little interest.
Still, he hacked Luis Suarez a few years ago, which is something we’d all love to do.
