Everton are currently having the worst season in a long time in their history in the Premier League, having lost four of their first seven matches. Their last match against Burnley also saw them facing defeat by 1-0, which has left them in the 16th position in the current season.
The Toffees spent well in the transfer market to bring in some of the top class players from all over Europe as well as by raiding their fellow rivals in the Premier League and revamped their side to provide it strength. However, there have been no signs of improvement in results so far this season, as the players have found it almost impossible to score goals and pick up points for their side.
This has caused their manager Ronald Koeman look for new players to be brought into the side in the next transfer window that commences in January next year. Among a number of players who are eyed by the Dutchman, the name which is on the top of the list is that of the Arsenal attacker Theo Walcott.
The Englishman has been one of the mainstays in the attack for the Gunners and has been a part of the outfit since his arrival in 2006 from fellow Premier League club Southampton. The 28-year-old has made a whopping 390 appearances for the side so far but has fallen down the pecking order in the recent times due to his lack of form.
Reportedly, the player has found it really difficult to carve a niche for himself in the starting lineup the season and has been reduced to a bits and pieces role in the side. Arsenal gaffer Arsene Wenger is worried about the form of his prized possession on the pitch and might be compelled to sell him in winter if he is not able to improve his performance by then.
The 28-year-old is one of the most highly regarded players in the Premier League and if there is a chance of him leaving the North London club, he will not have a dearth of suitors. The winger is already been tracked by a number of clubs including the Toffees, who want to rope him into the side for the rest of this season.
Walcott’s guile as a forward and also the ability to bamboozle the opposition with his swift footwork is going to be very handy for the Merseysiders if they are able to get a hand on the much-desired player and it is nonetheless going to be a valuable addition to the team.
