Everton attacker Theo Walcott is reportedly facing an uncertain future – and many of the club’s supporters on Twitter have responded by suggesting he is sold in the summer.
The 30-year-old has a fight on his hand to stay at Goodison Park (Daily Mail) just 18 months after his arrival.
The report details that the former England international is at risk, despite the fact he will still have another two years remaining on his contract in the summer.
Walcott was signed by the Toffees back in January 2018 and hasn’t quite managed to hit the same heights he did at former club Arsenal.
The right-winger has made 48 appearances for the Merseyside club in all competitions and scored seven times.
He’s found it difficult this term under manager Marco Silva to cement his spot in the team, with the likes of Bernard, Ademola Lookman and Richarlison all competing with him.
Walcott has been around a long time since making a name for himself at Southampton and starring at Arsenal, but it seems like he’s on the decline now.
The wide man still possesses decent pace to trouble full-backs, but his decision making and finishing is questionable.
Here are some of the Everton fans on the Walcott speculation:
Good and he deserves to be, poor mans Aaron lennon

Tbf, he’s not really done it for us has he. He’s now 30 and an high earner, we should really sell him but whose gonna take a player like him, at his age and on his wages?!….

Silva has thrown down the gauntlet to him t win his jersey back. Competition is healthy , he’s just lost his hunger to fight.

Yes if someone offered £15 million. He a declining player best taking a fee now rather than trying to get off his contract in a year or two

100% older now and not showing any worth. Let him go and get someone like Lozano in seems as Brands has the 1 out 1 in and the below 26 years old rule now.
