Arsenal forward Walcott has come on to Everton’s wishlist in the January transfer window, as they look to upgrade their forward line.
The Toffees have already snapped up Cenk Tosun this month, but Sam Allardyce wants more forward options at Goodison Park.
Walcott is now thought to be on his wishlist, and Everton are confident that they can get a deal over the line.
Walcott has been linked with a return to Southampton, but the Toffees believe he will be more keen to sign for them.
Southampton are fighting a relegation battle, while Everton’s upturn in form since Allardyce took charge has taken them away from the relegation zone.
Everton are currently in ninth place in the Premier League table, and have big plans for the future.
Walcott has scored four goals in 15 appearances for Arsenal across all competitions this term.
