The Daily Mail are reporting that Everton are making enquiries about signing Arsenal forward Theo Walcott in January. Everton boss Sam Allardyce has recently stated he will look at his options before making any transfer moves in January.
However, the Toffees are in need of an extra forward after the summer departure of star striker Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United. The Merseysiders striking options are limited to Wayne Rooney, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Oumar Niasse the current forward options available to boss Allardyce.
The Toffees have lacked pace in attack this season. One of Walcott’s biggest attributes is his pace. Allardyce reportedly believes Walcott could be the ideal solution to his team’s problems.
Walcott is out-of-favour at the north London club, having failed to make a single Premier League start this season. The 28-year-old has made just three cameo appearances from the substitute bench in the top-flight.
Walcott has made six starts in the League Cup and the Europa League, as Gunners boss Arsene Wenger now considers him a backup player. The veteran Frenchman has recently stated he does not want to sell the forward in January.
Sandro linked with January move
According to reports from Spain, Everton unsettled striker Sandro Ramirez could return to his homeland in January with Valencia on a loan deal.
The 22-year-old arrived on Merseyside from Malaga last summer for a cut-price fee of £5.2million due to a release clause in his contract. A graduate of Barcelona’s La Masia, the striker scored 14 La Liga goals last season.
The youngster arrived with big expectations on his shoulders. However, the Spaniard has struggled for first-team football on Merseyside and has failed to score in the Premier League. His only goal in 11 appearances this season came in the Europa League, in a 5-1 home defeat by Atalanta.
Sandro was linked with a summer move to Atletico Madrid prior to his switch to Merseyside and Atleti transfer ban.
