The Sun reported on Monday that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger will let the 28 year old leave in the January transfer window. The England international has fallen down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium, and has not started a Premier League game this season.
Sam Allardyce’s side are said to have already enquired about the availability of Walcott, with the Toffees seeking to strengthen their goal threat and pace in attack.
When he has played this season, the Arsenal star has staked a claim for a more regular first team place. In four Europa League games, Walcott has scored twice and provided two assists, while his performances in the Carabao Cup saw him score the winning goal in the third round tie against Doncaster Rovers.
The forward’s goal threat and flexibility are said to be the two attributes which are interesting Everton, and it seems like the Gunners could get a good fee for the player in January going by the interest being shown in him.
