Belgian striker Kevin Mirallas has claimed Arsenal are in talks to sign him this summer, according to Sky Sports.

The former St Etienne ace has enjoyed two superb seasons with Olympiakos, scoring 34 goals in 52 games since making the move to Greece in 2010.

This impressive form has attracted interest from some of Europe’s top clubs, with Sky Sports reporting that both Arsenal and Liverpool have made enquiries over the 24-year-old, who is believed to have a buy-out clause of just €8.25million (£6.4million).

Mirallas has now revealed that the Gunners are in talks with his manager over a possible move to the Emirates this summer, and the striker has talked up the move claiming it would be a good opportunity for him and his family.

Asked by Sky Sports News if he had spoken to Arsenal, he replied:

“My manager (has). Me? No.”

He was then asked is a deal may happen, to which he replied:

“Yes, it’s good. Thomas plays very good at Arsenal and now a lot of Belgian players are in the Premier League,”

“(Moving to England) It’s good for me, it’s good for my family and it’s a good opportunity, but I don’t know…it’s possible.”

    If Arsenal can get Kevin Mirallas they will definitly come first or second in the league. He is 24, reaching his peak, and a natural goal scorer. Podolski, Giroud and Mirallas would put fear into other clubs and there could have enough creativity to be the new ‘Invincibles’. Would like to say, Podolski looks single minded and possible captain material. Giroud looks mobile, intelligent and skillful. RVP should be allowed to leave or his low level dissatifaction will cause damage.

    I don’t know much about him only what I’ve read in the papers, and as he knows Vermaelan I’m sure he’s Mirallas all about Arsenal and the players we have, and the purchase price is not beyond the realms of fantasy, so I say why not go for him. Especially as Song hasn’t ruled out going to Barca if they actually come in with a firm offer, plus we are also in for Nurin, so for once we will have a strong team going into the start of the season, apart from the crocks that are already injured during the friendly game against Cologne.

    I wud say Sign him only when RVP leaves.
    His price is worth the gamble especially wid his goal scoring record.

    I think we need a defender more than we need a striker or a winger,let Arsenal release the dead wood players and rebuild the defence especially the right fullback as Sagna’s backup.Vander weil may do.

    Yes ofcourse pls prof just sign him couse he will boost our squad in terms of competing with our rivals since he has a record of goal scoring.Forget about rvp, and focus on what we have currently now, we lost plenty of heroes playars better than him’rvp’ and gunners remains gunners to mention few ‘Thierry Henry,Ian Right,Overmars,Anelka’ all those mentioned are better better than him and again some will come to make their names at arsenal like he has made his nane at arsenal.GUNNERS FOR LIFE.

    I believe some of these comments are coming from man u fans. Wenger don’t let RVP go. Even if he does not wants to play keep him on bench. Let us be coy to the core this time. Even if you are signing another person, sell chamack, Bentner. Song should not go anywhere. As for man u, just give us Rooney and have RVP.

    Mirallas looks exciting. He would be excellent on Arsenal.
    Sahin should be a priority as well. Add better backs and we are all set to challenge anyone.
