Everton shouldn't pursue Theo Walcott link

Arsenal's Theo Walcott

Everton are linked with a big-money move for the Arsenal winger.

According to The Mirror, Everton are weighing up a move for Arsenal winger Theo Walcott.

The report claims that Everton boss Ronald Koeman is preparing to spend £30 million on the 28-year-old, but he would be simply mad to do so.

The Arsenal man certainly has ability, but the truth is that he is far too inconsistent to be apart of what Koeman is trying to build on Merseyside.

He is not worth £30 million or anywhere near that amount.

Sixty five Premier League goals in 260 appearances should illustrate that Walcott has not quite hit the heights expected of him as a teenager and, at 28, he isn't going to get a lot better.

In fact, pace is a major part of his game and such an asset will desert him over the coming years, with injuries over the past couple of years already taking its toll on his speed.

As an attacking player, he is an okay goalscorer, and 10 goals in 28 league games last season ought to prove it, but he is nothing special and Everton would be wise to invest that £30 million elsewhere.
