Sam Allardyce has confirmed that Everton are progressing in their attempts to sign Arsenal star Theo Walcott this week, according to a report in The Guardian.
The 28-year-old’s potential move to Everton faces some competition from Southampton, the club where he played from 2005-2006 and scored four goals in 21 appearances.
Allardyce, in an attempt to bolster his side’s attacking side of things, has already roped in Cenk Tosun from Besiktas at the price of £21m.
The current contract of Walcott will last for 18 more months, and the current wage is currently pegged at £110,000 – a – week.
Walcott seems to have fallen out of favour with boss Arsene Wenger at the Emirates, but has, till date, scored 108 goals in 397 matches for the club in the last 12 years.
Allardyce had also said recently that Walcott would be a ‘fantastic addition’ to the side, as he who would be offering “goalscoring threat”, to the club that has been struggling with its strikers recently.
