Walcott leaves Arsenal to join Everton

Theo Walcott could have played his last game for Arsenal as 'Everton close in on £20m deal for England forward'

Everton monday transfer round-up: Walcott deal edges closer

Neither club disclosed the transfer fee but British media said Everton paid about 20 million pounds ($27.59 million) for the England global, who completed a medical on Wednesday.

Skipper Wayne Rooney has been the best player for Everton this season, playing in a no.10 role.

Walcott has left Arsenal tom sign for Sam Allardyce at Everton "I do really believe that I'm going to give it my all, which is what I always have done, and this place is going to get even more out of me".

'He told me it was a great place to play football and a club that is on the up.

Toffees new-boy Theo Walcott addressed the media today, ahead of his side's clash with West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League tomorrow, and shared the reason why he was so attracted to Everton, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

"We already have very talented players in our team and I'm sure if we sign him he would have a great input".

"I want to be a part of the atmosphere here and try to build something special", Walcott told EvertonTV.

Of his 16 appearances this season prior to his move to Everton, Walcott played only six times in the Premier League. His 19-goal campaign last season was his second-best - he scored 21 in 2012-13 - but Walcott dipped down Arsene Wenger's depth charge and is leaving to pursue regular football.

I want this club to push on and reach the levels like I feel that it can, particularly with the players coming in.

Walcott, who scored 108 goals in 396 appearances for Arsenal, hasn't been a first-choice pick for the past year and made the last of his 47 appearances for England in November 2016. I need that and I wanted that. The manager (Sam Allardyce) is very ambitious and I feel like the club is going in the right direction. He is very fast and a good crosser and I'd say that would be a massive signing for us, and I think I'd link up well with him. "I'm sure I'll get some time to go down". I want to be a part of the atmosphere here and try to build something special.
