WALCOTT SET FOR EVERTON MEDICAL
Arsenal forward Theo Walcott has arrived on Merseyside and could become an Everton player later on Tuesday, according to Sky sources.
If negotiations continue to make progress this afternoon, the 28-year old winger could begin a medical at the club’s Finch Farm training HQ on Tuesday evening.
Since the turn of the year, Everton have overtaken Southampton in the race for the player’s signature.
SSN understands that the Merseyside club’s ambition and spending power; Southampton’s poor recent form in the Premier League and Walcott’s desire to work with manager Sam Allardyce have been the key reasons for his decision to head to the North West.
Dortmund were also keen to sign Walcott, but the desire to play for Big Sam at Goodison proved decisive.
We understand the fee is in the region of £20m, ending 12 years at Arsenal.
