But Everton manager Martinez is confident that Mirallas will remain at Goodison Park, adding that the Toffees have no intention of selling the forward.

Martinez said: “Kevin Mirallas is on a long-term contract with us. We’re delighted with his form and he’s delighted with enjoying his football for Everton.

“We always work behind the scenes to try to see if we can extend relationships and we’ve been talking with Kevin for a long time just because we want to see how he feels about his situation and making sure he feels rewarded and wanted.

“He’s quite happy where he is, he just wants to concentrate on his football. That’s fine for everyone.”

Mirallas has scored three goals and made one assist in 10 Premier League appearances this season.
