Transfer News: Walcott Set For Everton Medical
After over 10 years of up and down with Arsenal, latest transfer reports suggest that Theo Walcott is on the verge of leaving the Gunners for a new challenge with Everton.
The two clubs have been locked in talks for days and a £20 million deal is close to be completed, with just a few details left to iron out.
Reports from England indicate that a medical is penciled in for Tuesday and it is hoped negotiations will be finalised in time for the winger to undergo the necessary medical checks ahead of his move to Goodison.
Walcott joined Arsenal in 2006 and had made 397 appearances for the club, scoring 108 goals.
But he has found his opportunities limited this season and has yet to start a game in the Premier League.
Arsene Wenger has always stated he wants the attacker to stay at the Emirates, but Walcott made it clear to the Arsenal boss that he wanted to move on to secure some first-team football.
Initially he was looking at a short-term loan move, but Everton have come in and agreed to match his wages as well as meeting the transfer fee set by Arsenal.
