Wayne Rooney tempted me to move to Everton: Theo Walcott

Theo Walcott admits Wayne Rooney played a "massive" part in his decision to leave Arsenal for Everton.

Walcott, who is also the England worldwide, signed a deal of 20 million pounds to move to Goodison Park from Arsenal, where he spent 12 years and scored 108 goals in 397 appearances.

Walcott's arrival should restore some balance to Everton's attack alongside Tosun, allowing Gylfi Sigurdsson to play in the middle with quick players on either side of him and the Turkish forward up front. Those are the reasons I came here.

Theo Walcott is on the verge of signing for Everton for a fee of £20m, and Goal understands Arsenal will not sanction the sale of Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United until they have agreed to sign Henrikh Mkhitaryan as a replacement.

"We already have very talented players in our team and I'm sure if we sign him he would have a great input".

The 28-year-old hardly featured for Arsenal this season, playing just 64 minutes of Premier League football, and a move away from the Emirates could prove to be just what he needs to help breath fire back into his stuttering career.

With his football limited primarily to cup competitions in 2017-18, Walcott has scored three goals from five Europa League starts and claimed two assists.

"He felt it was the right place and I totally agree with him".

"A fantastic history and I want to make that history present". I feel like the players have got a point to prove, I have got a point to prove and it is going to get the best out of us, I am sure.

But the former Arsenal man says he's only focused on playing well and getting off to a good start for his new club, not looking forward to possibly being on the plane to Russian Federation. "I'm sure I'll get some time to go down".

Walcott, 28, had 108 goals in 397 games during his 12-year tenure with Arsenal.

"I feel like I can add value in any of the front-line positions".
