Everton attacker Theo Walcott is reportedly facing an uncertain future at Goodison Park.
According to the Daily Mail, the 30-year-old is now fighting for his future with the Merseyside club after struggling this season.
It is understood that the £20million signing is at risk, as the club’s Director of Football Marcel Brands is planning a revamp of targeting players aged 20 to 25 in the transfer market.
Walcott has made 34 appearances across all competitions this season, scoring four goals and supplying two assists in return.
The right-winger has not started any of the last three league games and has been in poor form during the last few months.
Walcott is clearly not up to the standard anymore and Everton should consider cashing in on him while they still can at the end of the season.
The ex-Arsenal ace has become too inconsistent going forward and there are now better options within Marco Silva’s squad.
He is on a staggering £120,000-a-week contract (Mail) that doesn’t expire until 2021 and getting him off the books would make sense.
Everton’s long-term plan to bring in younger players should help avoid similar mistakes in the past, as they signed a Walcott that was past his prime.
