Everton have made enquiries about Arsenal’s Theo Walcott as the Toffees search for a forward to replace Romelu Lukaku.
New manager Sam Allardyce is looking at a potential forward and is interested in Walcott as he fits his criteria.
Allardyce sees Walcott as the solution to the lack of pace of Everton which Ronald Koeman assembled in the summer.
Walcott could be the versatile option the Toffees need and could be a goal threat they are also lacking since Lukaku left them for Manchester United.
“I understand why they didn’t replace Lukaku – nowadays that’s such a hugely difficult piece of business,” Allardyce said.
“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.”
