Allardyce open to giving Walcott what he wants at Everton

Everton manager Sam Allardyce has suggested that he will allow Theo Walcott to pick where he plays.

The experienced coach has been vocal in his desire to sign the England international from Arsenal before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.

The Daily Mail claims that the Toffees hope to seal the attacker’s signature for around £20m.

Walcott has been part of the Arsenal fold for 12 years after joining from Southampton.

The 28-year-old has scored more than 100 goals, but he never quite hit the heights on an individual level for the Gunners.

During his time playing under Arsene Wenger, Walcott has been handed various roles in attack.

However, the ex-Saints star has admitted in the past that he prefers to be positioned up front.

Judging by Allardyce’s latest comments, it seems that Walcott will be given an opportunity to revive his career.

Although, nothing is guaranteed as yet with regards to the player’s position.

The Daily Mail quotes the manager as saying:

“I don’t know where I’ll play him until we get that deal done. When that deal’s done I can have that conversation with him. I see him playing anywhere across the front three and I’m presuming if he’s not comfortable with that then he’ll tell us and it won’t happen. We’d have that conversation if we were going to secure that transfer and we’ll see where it goes from there.”
