Everton FC Signs Arsenal Winger Theo Walcott For $45Million

Everton signed England winger Theo Walcott from Arsenal in a deal worth a reported £25 million ($45 million) on Wednesday (Jan 17).

Confirmation of the transfer came on Wednesday, with the forward’s 12-year spell with the Gunners coming to an end:

 

After the announcement, Walcott issued a statement on the move via his Instagram account:

 

Although Walcott has a long affinity with Arsenal, the move felt like a necessary one for the England international. After all, the former Southampton man has failed to start a single Premier League game this season.

The forward has always had blistering pace, and throughout his career his goal scoring record has been decent. Last term Walcott finished the season with 19 goals in all competitions, and he’s grabbed three in the UEFA Europa League and one in the League Cup this season.

The 28-year-old made just 16 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions this season and last started a Premier League game for the Gunners in April. Walcott scored 108 goals in 397 matches for Arsenal in total since joining them from Southampton in 2006
