Everton are in talks with Arsenal over the potential signing of Theo Walcott, Sam Allardyce has confirmed.

Walcott has found game-time hard to come by this season with most of his appearances coming in domestic cups or the Europa League.

"If that can be sorted out it would be a great addition from an attacking point of view". People laugh at us - they see it as a bit of a joke with what's going on at the moment - players don't want to be there. "I don't think there is any chance of a loan".

"We will see. We have a good relationship still and I don't want him to be frustrated or to lose an opportunity to go to the World Cup".

He added: "He's obviously very eager to make an impression".

The links to Walcott in the press have grown in recent weeks and Allardyce admitted in his pre-match press conference that he would love to bring the England global to Goodison Park this month.

"It is a permanent deal we are hoping to negotiate".




Theo Walcott joined Arsenal from Southampton way back in 2006 as a 16-year-old with a lot of promise.

"I don't get optimistic otherwise I get disappointed". You never get excited until someone has signed on the dotted line.

The Toffees are eager to add steel to their side ahead of the second half of the season, as Big Sam aims to move up the table.

The Blues have been rumoured to be interested in signing the England forward for a number of weeks but their interest has escalated since the January transfer window opened.

"We have had a number of enquiries for some players but none of those enquiries have hit anywhere near where our valuation might be".

Another factor in any decision could be Everton's position in the Premier League - they are in ninth place, while Southampton are only one place above the relegation zone.
