Theo Walcott is an old Arsenal player who was at the club almost 12 years. He made 397 appearances and scored 108 goals. Official Arsenal’s statement says: «We all thank Theo for his contribution to the squad and we wish him bright future”. Arsene Wenger didn’t want to lose Walcott, however, he said that it was a sensitive subject in a World Cup year.

In turn, Walcott told in the interview: “I’ve had numerous chats with Wayne and he is the massive factor, who tempted me to move to Everton. He told the club is a great place to play and that is on the up.

It’s a club with a great history and I’m very ambitious that I’ve come here. I hope to push the squad to the next level. I’m proud that I managed to score 19 goals last season. I hope I can bring to Everton much more of attacking force”.
