Walcott nears Everton transfer

English Premier League

The England international has found game time hard to come by at the Emirates Stadium over the last few seasons, having made just 16 appearances in all competitions this term.

And, with the FIFA World Cup just six months away, the forward has decided to move on in search of more minutes on the pitch.

Walcott now brings down the curtain on a 12-year career with the Gunners, having initially joined from Southampton in 2006, as he looks to forge a new adventure with the Toffees.

The England forward, who has since been pictured at Finch Farm after passing his medical, is expected to be unveiled later today after putting pen to paper on an Everton contract.
