West Ham are finding it tough going to prise Kevin Miralles out of Everton.
The Hammers are particularly keen to grab the Belgian because whilst he is essentially a winger he can play in the middle of the attack if required.
The Irons have made a second bid for the 27 year old in the region of £7 million but Everton are highly reluctant sellers.
ClaretandHugh was told exclusively by a top insider: “They don’t want to sell him. It’s as simple as that – we have gone in twice but it’s very tough going.”
It’s been widely reported that the player is in the final year of his contract and that an offer of around the £7 million mark would get him out of Goodison.
But ClaretandHugh was told: “Unfortunately, what hasn’t been so widely reported is that Everton have a year’s option in their favour so it’s very hard.”
