Everton, yesterday completed the £20 million signing of Theo Walcott from Arsenal.

The 28-year old England international revealed his former England team-mate, Wayne Rooney, played a huge role in convincing him to switch from the Emirates stadium to Goodison Park.

“I had numerous chats with Wayne and that was one massive factor which really tempted me to come to Everton,” Walcott told evertontv.

“He told me it was a great place to play football and a club that is on the up. Those are the reasons I came here.

“This is a club with great history. The fans are brilliant, they are always passionate … and I used to find it very tough playing here.

“You want to be part of something and Wayne feels Everton are really going to improve.”

Walcott is hoping to re-discover his goal scoring form having seen his play time at Arsenal greatly reduced this season under coach Arsene Wenger.

“I was very proud of what I did last season – scoring 19 goals,” Walcott said.

“I want to bring that [scoring form] to Everton Football Club. I want to be part of the attacking force that is here.

“It always comes down to hard work and I think the manager here will get the best out of all the players.

“I just want to play football and enjoy it again. I feel this move will make that happen.”

Walcott has been capped 47 times by England and would be hoping he does enough at his new club to convince the England manager to include him on the list of players for Russia 2018 World Cup tournament.
