However it looks like Roy Hodgson is looking to add some more experience as they are being linked to winger Theo Walcott on transfer deadline day.
According to David Ornstein at The Athletic, Everton are willing to allow to let winger Walcott leave the club, and this has alerted fellow Premier League sides like Burnley, Fulham and Southampton as well as Crystal Palace.
Everton don’t expect to get a big fee for Walcott, however a potential stumbling block will be whether any of the interested parties are willing to meet the England international’s wage demands.
There is no doubting the experience of Walcott as he has an abundance with Everton as well as Arsenal and Southampton. The Englishman has played 506 times throughout his career, scoring 124 goals as well as picking up 87 assists, per Transfermarkt. Throughout his career his quality was duly noted as he was selected to play for England 47 times, where he scored eight goals.
He might be good for squad depth, however, it is fair to say that he has struggled to perform to his best as of late and this might be due to the fact that he is now 31, per Transfermarkt. He has only played twice this season, and last campaign, he only managed two goals in the Premier League. Therefore it is worth wondering how big an impact Walcott could have at Selhurst Park.
Hodgson should definitely look to sign him if he wants squad depth, but if he wants consistent starting eleven players, it might be better to look elsewhere.
