Transfer update : Theo Walcott join Everton

It’s looking more and more likely that his five minute spell at Bournemouth last weekend was Theo Walcott’s last appearance for the club. 

After emerging as the favorite to land Arsenal’s current longest-serving player over the last few days, Everton are apparently close to completing the signing, according to The Guardian.

The Mirror’s John Cross seems confident of the transfer as well. It’s hard to blame Walcott for wanting out - he’s made just six appearances in the Premier League this season, all as a substitute. As he enters the final stage of his career, a fresh start makes sense. This became especially apparent once it was clear he didn’t factor into Arsene Wenger’s plans recently, despite Arsenal’s desperate need for pace and width, as well as some brief returns to a more traditional 4-2-3-1 formation better suited for Walcott’s skill set.

With rumors buzzing of new signings up front, it’s easy for Walcott’s departure to beovershadowed.
