Official: Theo Walcott Pens Three-And-A-Half Year Deal With Everton

Published

on

Everton FC has completed the signing of Arsenal forward Theo Walcott on a three-and-a-half year contract with a reported fee of £20m.

In the wake of touching down at Finch Farm for a medical examination at Everton’s complex on Tuesday, The Toffees have finished the signing of Arsenal winger Theo Walcott, who moves toward becoming Sam Allardyce’s second January transfer signing following the £27m paid for striker Cenk Tosun from Besiktas.

Following 12 years at Arsenal, in which he scored 108 goals in 397 appearances, Walcott has chosen to quit the Emirates, with Everton’s £20million offer fighting off adversary suitors, including Southampton.

Walcott is lured by the prospect of Sam Allardyce reigniting his career, having not featured for England since the international friendly game against Spain in November 2016. He is set to take the No 11 shirt emptied by Kevin Mirallas at Goodison Park.

Meanwhile, Arsenal wants to reinvest the funds they get for the 28-year-old, with solid interest for Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bordeaux forward Malcom.

The move brings to an end Walcott’s 12-year stay at Arsenal, where he scored 108 goals in 397 appearances.

“There’s something about this move I’ve just felt good about,” he said.

Walcott’s former club Southampton were also interested in a deal.

But Walcott, who has not started a league game for Arsenal this season, believes Allardyce can reignite his career.

“It felt like it was time for me to move on [from Arsenal],” he said.

“It was sad but it’s exciting at the same time and I want to reignite my career and push Everton to win things as they have done before.

“The manager is very hungry and it’s just what I need. I’ve had a couple of chats with him and straightaway I felt that hunger and that desire that he wanted from me.”
