Theo Walcott has left Arsenal behind him after 12 years, signing a three-and-a-half year contract with Everton for a fee believed to be in the region of £20 million.
Theo Walcott’s long run in the Arsenal colours has finally come to an end as it emerged that he has signed a three-and-a-half year deal with Everton following a lengthy period of uncertainty about his future.
It did always seem as though Walcott’s potential eluded him during his time under Arsene Wenger and while in patches he has been able to show exactly what he is capable of, he never really had the consistency to keep his form up for a lengthy period of time.
Everton were the club who stepped up to take the Englishman on, paying a fee that has been reported to be around £20 million.
Walcott, 28, appeared on 270 different occasions for the Gunners and brings with him 48 caps for the English national team. Over the course of this campaign he has struggled for playing time and with this move, will be looking to usher in a new chapter in his career.
