Everton negotiating Walcott move
Written by Morenike Adebayo on January 12, 2018
Everton manager Sam Allardyce says the club is negotiating with Arsenal to sign Theo Walcott on a permanent deal. Allardyce said the twenty-eight-year-old forward would be a “fantastic addition”, who would offer “goal scoring threat”.
Allardyce, who has already signed striker Cenk Tosun from Besitkas for twenty-seven million pounds in January, says any signings made in addition to a deal for Walcott would only happen if players left Everton first.
But he views Walcott as “proven”, citing his “goal scoring threat” and “crossing ability” as key attributes.
Walcott, a two-time FA Cup winner with Arsenal, has featured 395 times for the club in 13 seasons since joining for five million pounds from Southampton in 2006.
Everton appoint ex-Southampton boss Ronald Koeman as manager

Everton have confirmed the appointment of Ronald Koeman as their new manager on a three-year deal. The Toffees will pay about five million pounds compensation for the fifty-three-year-old, who leaves Premier League rivals Southampton after two years in charge.
Everton have been without a manager since sacking Roberto Martinez just before the end of the 2015-2016 season.
Koeman said Everton is a club with a great history and real ambition, while chairman Bill Kenwright called the Dutchman his number one target.
Koeman is expected to be joined at Goodison Park by brother Erwin and fitness coach Jan Kluitenberg, though a deal for the pair is yet to be finalized.
