Theo Walcott’s future at Everton is in doubt, according to reports. As per The Sun, The Toffees are willing to let six first-team players leave, including Walcott.
Jordan Pickford, Maarten Stekelenburg, Phil Jagielka, Morgan Schneiderlin and Cenk Tosun are the other players facing the axe.
Walcott could be left to weigh up his options in the summer transfer window after a mixed season at Goodison Park.
The sporadic England international started the season brightly but has been demoted to a bench role in the second half of the season.
With four goals and two assists in 35 games, Everton might feel that they can upgrade on Walcott. And the 30-year-old is likely to start losing value as he enters the final years of his career.
But this could be the perfect time for Southampton to consider bringing Walcott back to where it all started.
Walcott became Southampton’s youngest ever player at the age of 16 back in the 2005/06 season and played for the Saints before his move to Arsenal.
He scored five times in 23 games as a teenager before his move to North London. But now could be the time to return.
Walcott would provide Ralph Hasenhuttl with a different dimension up front, using his pace and experience on the wing or as a back-up striker.
