David Beckham’s Inter Miami want to sign Theo Walcott from Everton, according to Bleacher Report.

It has been reported that the newly-formed Major League Soccer outfit are looking for big names to recruit ahead of their inaugural season in 2020.

Former Arsenal star Walcott, now at Merseyside outfit Everton, is among the names who have been discussed among the Inter Miami hierarchy, according to the report.

 

Quality footballer

Walcott, who can operate as a forward or as a winger, is a very good player and would be a brilliant signing for Inter Miami.

The 29-year-old still has a fair few years left in him, and now that he is playing quite regularly at Everton, the England international is going to improve in the coming years.

While leaving for the Premier League for MLS will be a step down for Walcott, the attacker will flourish in the USA.

Walcott - who earns £110,000 per week as salary, according to Spotrac.com - has been on the books of Everton since January 2018 when he joined from Arsenal for a transfer fee reported by The Telegraph to be worth £20 million.

Back in September 2008, Beckham spoke highly of Walcott, and told The Guardian: “The speed he has is incredible and I have never played with a faster player.”
