Everton fans react on Twitter as Walcott talks get underway

Many Everton fans would have been thrilled during the summer when the club spent over £100m on new signings.

Unfortunately, a large number of the new arrivals failed to take the Toffees forward; in fact, the club were in a relegation battle under former manager Ronald Koeman.

Sam Allardyce is now in charge and he is overseeing his first transfer window since taking the job at the end of November.

The Merseyside outfit are in a much healthier position in the Premier League table given that they are ninth in the standings, seven points above the drop.

With that in mind, fans might be allowing themselves to get excited about the potential new arrivals this month.

The club have already recruited forward Cenk Tosun from Besiktas, and now Allardyce has revealed to reporters that the club are in negotiations with Arsenal over the signing of winger Theo Walcott.

The winger, who has scored more than 100 goals for the Gunners during his 12-year stay, has not started a single league game this season.

Once Allardyce revealed the news, Everton fans gave their reactions on Twitter.
