Kevin Mirallas is considering leaving Everton in the January transfer window, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The Belgian international has been the subject of much controversy lately, with his exclusion from the 18-man squad that defeated Watford only fuelling the recent speculation surrounding his future.

Mirallas has been struggling to deal with his frustration following Everton’s torrid start to the campaign, and has seen himself fall down the pecking order under both Ronald Koeman, and now caretaker boss David Unsworth.

It’s claimed by the Liverpool Echo that whether Mirallas goes ahead and looks for a move away in January depends on who Everton name as their next manager.

Sean Dyche has been heavily linked with the Everton hot-seat, while the experienced Sam Allardyce has also been touted with the move to Merseyside.

The 30-year-old was keen to return to Olympiakos in the summer transfer window, but saw his request denied as Everton looked to keep hold of the versatile forward.
