Walcott on the brink of completing Everton transfer

Arsenal's English midfielder Theo Walcott warms up ahead of the English League Cup semi-final first leg football match between Chelsea and Arsenal at Stamford Bridge in London on January Walcott on the brink of completing Everton transfer

Many may have suggested that the move north for Walcott is a possible attempt at improving his chances to be named in Gareth Southgate's England squad for the World Cup.

However, unrealistic standards and expectations ultimately led to his decline to seem more rapid and odd, to the point where even the Arsenal faithful had stopped supporting the winger. He made 397 appearances and scored 108 goals.

The deal means that Walcott will leave the club after 12 years and will finish with just short of 400 appearances for Arsenal, at the age of 28. "I wish everyone at the club every success for the future", he wrote on Twitter Wednesday evening. The fans are always passionate, they're great and I always used to find it very tough playing here.

And now Walcott revealed that his England team-mate played a crucial role in convincing him to switch to Everton.

Everton were the club who stepped up to take the Englishman on, paying a fee that has been reported to be around £20 million.

Having bought Cenk Tosun, Theo Walcott will likely partner him in attack with Yannick Bolasie.

Wenger deserves the utmost respect for what he has done at Arsenal
Amid the talk of Ozil leaving, Smith has spoken of how the club have been quietly going about ironing out a new contract. Asked whether the 29-year-old would still be at the club in February, Wenger replied: "Yes, of course".

Allardyce confirmed last week the club had entered into negotiations with Arsenal over Walcott, who carried out his medical on Tuesday after travelling to the club's training ground.

The club has won trophies, but I want them to win trophies now. "The manager (Sam Allardyce) is very hungry".

"I've got to try and revert back to a more defensive structure with the team again and try to get those clean sheets that gave us so many wins when I first came here".

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.

The Toffees now sit in ninth spot in the Premier League table, and Allardyce will be hoping that his side can mount a sustained push for the Europa League spots during the final third of their campaign.
