Everton reportedly close to signing Aaron Lennon replacement

Walcott

Everton are reportedly considering a move for Arsenal forward Theo Walcott as a possible replacement for Aaron Lennon whose contract is set to expire at the end of the season.

Walcott has struggled for game time at the Gunners this season and Toffees manager Sam Allardyce is reportedly interested in signing him on loan this season.

Walcott will probably be hoping that he gets a loan move this month as he needs to be playing regularly if he wants to stand a chance of making the England squad for the 2018 World Cup.

The 28-year old Walcott has made only eight starts for the Gunners this season, all of which have come in either the League Cup or FA Cup.

He has yet to make a start in the Premier League and has only made four appearances in the top flight, all of which have been off the bench.
