With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Kevin Mirallas claims Arsenal are in talks to sign him.
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.”
