Arsenal attacker Theo Walcott has been spotted in Everton training ground, today, January 16 - a move that suggests that his transfer to the Toffees is imminent.
Top British media, Sky Sports reports via a tweet on their official Twitter account that the Englishman was spotted at the Everton training ground to discuss a possible move to Sam Allardyce led Everton side.
Everton manager Sam Allardyce has confirmed that his side are in talks to sign Arsenal forward Theo Walcott on a permanent deal.
The Toffees boss is looking to sign his compatriot from the Gunners as he attempts to increase Everton's attacking threat.
Walcott has also been linked with a return to former club Southampton but it seems Everton will be his final destination following Kevin Mirallas move to Olympiacos.
Speaking in a news conference ahead of a possible move for Walcott, Allardyce said: "You're all aware of our interest in Theo,"
"If we're able to get that over the line, I'll be delighted. "If we can get that all sorted out then that would be a great addition to join us from an attacking point of view.
"Two to three reasons [for interest]: goalscoring threat, pace, experience and he's good on assists from wide in terms of his crossing.
"So, if that's at all possible, that would be very nice. It's not imminent, but negotiations are going on."
