Everton enquire about Theo Walcott's availability

Wenger to tell Arsenal first-team star he's free to leave in January

Wenger to tell Arsenal first-team star he's free to leave in January

Theo Walcott will be told he's free to leave Arsenal in January, should a suitable offer come in for the England global, reports claim.

Walcott is yet to make a Premier League start this season and that has prompted Everton to enquire about his situation, according to the Daily Mail.

Sam Allardyce is desperate to bolster his attack, and has identified Walcott as the man to add pace and goals to his struggling squad.

The England winger is not wanted by boss Arsene Wenger, and is free to leave if a suitable offer comes in.

Signed from Southampton for £12m as a 16-year-old, Walcott arrived with the tag of being arguably one of English football's brightest talents but a series of injuries and indifferent performances hampered his development.

But Everton face competition from the Saints as well as West Ham for the three-time FA Cup victor.

Walcott is not the only player to be shown the door, with Mathieu Debuchy, Carl Jenkinson and Calum Chambers all thought to be on their way out in January.

Walcott has mainly featured in cup competitions for Arsenal this season and his contract expires in 2019, with his future at the club looking increasingly uncertain.

Everton are in dire need of a striker following the sale of Romelu Lukaku, and could lose yet another forward with reports linking Sandro Ramirez back to La Liga.
