Everton fans here in the Tavern have acquired some new-found confidence, as new man Big Sam makes a perfect start to life at Goodison Park. Although the Toffees have made their worst start to a Premier League season in recent years, with a new manager at the helm, it’ll be of great importance for the club to utilize the January transfer window to its full potential.
In recent times, the Toffees were nothing short of useless with their fund management when Ronald Koeman was in charge. After spending a huge amount in the summer months, it hasn’t worked out at all.
However, under new reign, it’s time that Everton looked at proven players and someone who the Landlord here in the Tavern sees as a perfect buy for the club is, Theo Walcott. After being linked with an interest in the attacker in the Daily Mail, the out of favour Arsenal forward would add that extra burst of pace that’s lacking from a rather sluggish Everton attack.
After the departure of Romelu Lukaku, things just haven’t been the same in the striking department, meaning acquiring a prolific striker is more important than ever.
Obtaining Theo Walcott could be a complete game-changer for the Merseyside outfit. Still in his prime years in football, he can offer an electrifying burst of speed that’s been known to terrorize the toughest defences, along with the missing ingredient in Everton’s season so far, the ability to score goals.
Also, after spending dearly in the previous transfer window it won’t have any implications on the asking price for the England international, with an expected price tag surely low in accordance to his lack of game-time.
So in the midst of a crisis at Goodison Park, would you like to see Theo Walcott become your new number 9?
