Everton’s interest in Theo Walcott has been made official with Sam Allardyce confirming he wants to sign the Arsenal forward.
Reports yesterday suggested that the Toffees were preparing a £20m bid, and at a press conference this morning the Everton boss made public his desire to make the deal happen.
SA: You're all aware of our interest in Theo Walcott. If that can all be sorted out, which is difficult, then he'd be a great addition.

“You’re all aware of our interest in Theo Walcott,” he said. “If that can all be sorted out, which is difficult, then he’d be a great addition.”
Arsenal are willing to let the
29 28 year old, who has just under 18 months on his current deal, leave during the January window. The two clubs are in discussions over a permanent deal.
He has barely played in the Premier League this season, and was not even called from the bench during the 0-0 Carabao Cup game on Wednesday night.
Let’s see if Arsene Wenger says anything about it when he meets the press this morning.
