On Wednesday we spoke about the excitement surrounding a potential move for Olympiacos striker Kevin Mirallas.
The 24-year-old Belgian is a long-standing target for Moyes and be available for around £5million.
He was already known to be keen on a move to the Premier League and reports had suggested that discussions between us and the players agent had already got under way.
However now that Arsenal have cashed in on Robin van Persie, with the Dutch striker moving to Manchester United for £24million, it would seem we now have competition from Arsene Wenger for Mirallas.
'Players always have preferences, but we will have to see who wants me the most. I know everything that is going on. I know my agent has spoken to Arsenal and is now talking to David Moyes. Mirallas told the Daily Mail.
He continued: 'It is good that one or two Premier League clubs are interested in me, but there are still two weeks to go before the transfer window shuts. It will be a race to get me, so let`s see who wins. The main thing is, I do feel ready for the Premier League, and I am looking forward to playing there.`
Sounds like someone who is looking for the biggest pay packet, which is never a good sign as our finances barely let us compete, let alone with one of the so-called big clubs in the Premier League.
Although one card we do hold in trying to persuade him that he is better off at Goodison Park is Marouane Fellaini.
'Marouane and I are both French-speaking Belgium players, so that would be an advantage for me, Maybe he can convince me I should become an Everton player.` he concluded.
What a tease.
