Kevin Campbell has suggested on Twitter that he believes Everton will sign Theo Walcott.

Everton boss Sam Allardyce confirmed via BBC Sport in his press conference today that he is interested in signing the Arsenal attacker.

That confirmation of interest comes a day after The Telegraph claimed that the Toffees had lodged a £20 million bid for the 28-year-old, who has fallen out of favour in North London.

It seems like Everton are making good headway for Walcott, who has managed only five Premier League appearances this season, and none from the start.

And Campbell, who played for both clubs, believes a transfer will materialise after responding to a fan on Twitter.

Theo Walcott of Arsenal warms up prior to the Premier League match between Crystal Palace and Arsenal at Selhurst Park on December 28, 2017 in London, England.

Walcott doesn't have the best of reputations in terms of being a quality player, but he is a proven goalscorer and that's precisely what Allardyce needs.

The Goodison Park side might have already signed Cenk Tosun for £27 million, but the Arsenal man, who scored 19 goals in 29 starts for the Gunners last season, will surely add something else and he'd be a very decent signing.
