Kevin Mirallas is a Belgium forward who can play behind the second striker or out on the wings. 

He signed for Everton in the summer of 2012 from Greek club Olympiacos.

 Mirallas came through the ranks in his homeland at Standard Liege but first played competitively after when he signed for French side OSC Lille.

Did You Know? Whilst at Lille he was nicknamed "Ronaldo of the poor" due to his playing style being similar to that of Ronaldo the Portuguese winger and Lille fans who in France are often referred to as being poor!

in 2008 Mirallas joined AS Saint-Étienne but after initailly impressing he struggled to keep his place in the side and was loaned out to Greek side Olympiakos in 2010.

He proved to be a big crowd favourite at Olympiakos and scored some important goals for the Greek side who moved quick to sign him permanently in the summer of 2011.

The following season Mirallas impressed again finishing top goalscorer for the Greeks helping them win the league and he was also named Belgium footballer of the year.

Mirallas signed for Everton in August 2012 after we beat off rumoured competition for his signature from the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool.

Marouane Fellaini told Mirallas that Everton was a big family club and he believed his fellow Belgium would settle in quickly to life on Merseyside.

Mirallas quickly impressed the Everton fans during his first season at the club with his vast array of tricks and dribbling skills. A particular highlight of his first season was his goals against Stoke City at Goodison Park and away at Tottenham.
