The Belgian was pressed into that role in Everton FC's win over Chelsea at the weekend
Mirallas was pressed into the role during the second half of the absorbing 1-0 win over title contenders Chelsea at Goodison Park last Saturday.
The Belgium international’s pace stretched the Londoners’ defence with David Luiz fortunate not to receive more than a booking from referee Howard Webb for a clear tug that prevented the Everton man being clean through on goal.
And despite Martinez’s forward options having been further bolstered by the arrival of Romelu Lukaku, the Spaniard is prepared to use Mirallas in a central position if required.
“It’s something we could probably see again, yes,” said the Goodison manager. “It’s a good option. Kevin can take things in and help in different ways, and that’s a choice you want.
“We have Romelu Lukaku ready, we have Nikica Jelavic doing a great job and Arouna Kone we hope to have fit for the weekend.
“If you want the results your performances deserve, sometimes you need a cutting edge up front at times and we have the personnel to do that.”
Martinez added: “Kevin Mirallas is at the stage of his career where he can play in many positions and understands different ways of playing.
“He has played as a striker previously at Olympiacos, so we were aware we had that option available.
“We were defending well at the time, and it’s important to have pace and mobility up front. And Kevin gave us an outlet and a real threat. As a team, we need to be able to adjust and adapt.”
Martinez, whose side look to maintain their unbeaten start to the season at West Ham United on Saturday, has revealed the high of the triumph over Chelsea has been carried through into training this week.
“You get a feelgood factor when you have the performance we had at the weekend,” said the Spaniard. “More important, though, was the unity we felt during the match.
“Goodison was a special place to be and the players and staff felt the power and help of the crowd.
“That carried us through over the line, and we still had that feeling during training at Finch Farm.”
Gareth Barry posted an outstanding debut performance against the Londoners having arrived on a season-long loan from Manchester City.
And the midfielder was impressed with new team-mate Ross Barkley, who he believes has the potential to achieve whatever he wants during his career.
“I had two days training with him before the game, and seeing him around the place I can see he has bags of confidence and lots of ability,” said Barry.
“If he manages to keep a level head and keep learning, even from any mistakes he makes, I’m sure he can go all the way.
“The sky is the limit for him but I’m sure everyone at Everton want him to keep his feet on the ground. He has the ability to get right to the top.”
