Theo Walcott completes move to Everton from Arsenal

Theo Walcott is close to completing a move to Everton

Walcott, who had 18 months remaining on his contract, has scored 108 goals in 397 appearances for Arsenal but boss Arsene Wenger has not picked him regularly this term.

Walcott, who has 47 global caps to his name, becomes Allardyce's second signing as Everton boss, after the £28million arrival of Cenk Tosun. He wants to play every week and really take his career forward again.

"It felt like it was time for me to move on [from Arsenal]", Walcott added. This year looks a little hard but in the future I want to win trophies and be part of that for the club.

Everton have completed the transfer of Theo Walcott from Arsenal in a deal worth more than £20m.

"It's important as a player when you go to a club that the manager wants you and it seems Sam Allardyce really wants him there".

Everton manager Sam Allardyce praised the new signing, saying, "I'm thrilled we've been able to secure a player of Theo's experience and quality".

"I want to be part of something and I feel like this place will offer me that".

Walcott has signed a three-and-a-half year deal with the Merseysiders.

The 28-year old came off the bench in the Gunners' 2-1 loss to Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium this past weekend, and that could very well turn out to be the last time Walcott dons the Arsenal colours.

The Germany Under-21 global would eventually sign for Besiktas four years later before 41 league goals earned him a move to Everton.

He could make his debut as soon as Saturday, when Everton face West Bromwich Albion at Goodison Park.

"His pace is one of his key strengths which we lack in this squad", said Allardyce last week.

Arsene Wenger said that he wants Walcott to stay, but also admitted that he can not guarantee him enough game time, and with the World Cup approaching, Theo desperately needs time on the pitch to have a chance in the Summer to be part of the England squad.
