EVERTON have enquired about the availability of Arsenal out-of-favour striker Theo Walcott in January as the Toffees new manager Sam Allardyce looks to strengthen offensive options this winter to bounce back after the slow start.

Former England national team head-coach is keen to add players of top quality to the Toffees squad to climb back on top of the league table.

Walcott is yet to make a start in the Premier League for Arsenal, and that has prompted the Toffees to enquire about his situation, according to the Daily Mail reports.

Former Crystal Palace boss has selected Walcott in the only squad of his short-lived spell during his time in Charge of England national team, coming off the bench in a 1-0 win over Slovakia.

And now, the Everton boss wants to sign him in January and believed that 28-year-old could inject some much-needed speed to their side.

The Toffees have failed to fill the hole that has been left by the departure of Romelu Lukaku who has joined Manchester United.

Before taking the Everton job, Allardyce told Paddy Power: “I understand why they didn’t replace Lukaku – nowadays that’s such a hugely difficult piece of business.

“There’s such a lack of top quality strikers, not just in England but literally across the world today.

“But still, the club needs someone to get goals and change those results around.”
