Former Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea defender Jason Cundy said on the Drive show on talkSPORT last Friday evening (5:55pm, October 6, 2017) that Arsenal attacker Theo Walcott should consider a move to Everton in the January transfer window.

Walcott, who can operate as a forward or as a winger, has been linked with moves away from Arsenal in January.

According to The Gambling Times, Everton, West Ham United, Crystal Palace and Southampton all are interested in securing the services of the England international.

Former Tottenham and Chelsea defender Cundy has said that the 28-year-old, who knows the Premier League inside out, should consider moving to Everton.

“Walcott should consider Everton and also Crystal Palace,” said Cundy about Walcott on the Drive show on talkSPORT last Friday evening (5:55pm, October 6, 2017). “They are desperate for someone up top. I very much doubt he will go there, though.”

Walcott has pace, and that is something that Ronald Koeman’s Everton need at the moment in attack.

The 28-year-old, though, is not a natural goalscorer, and the Toffees should not expect him to be a direct replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who left Everton for Premier League rivals Manchester United in the summer transfer window.

The Englishman has been on the books of Arenal since January 2006 when he joined from Premier League rivals Southampton for an initial transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £5 million.
