Theo Walcott joined Everton from Arsenal during the January transfer window, and the attacker impressed for the Toffees in the second half of the campaign.
Walcott managed over 100 goals during his time at Arsenal – including 19 during the 2016-17 season – but left the Emirates Stadium for Everton in early 2018.
The Englishman managed three goals and three assists in the Premier League after joining Everton, and certainly captured the imagination of the club’s supporters.
Last season was difficult for Everton when considering the timing of Ronald Koeman’s departure, and indeed the struggles of Sam Allardyce.
Marco Silva is now in position as head coach, however, and there is certainly a lot for the Everton supporters to be excited about entering the new season.

Walcott knows what to say when it comes to winning over the Everton fans, and a number have been on social media paying tribute to the 29-year-old.
Indeed, Walcott has been tipped to enjoy a strong campaign for his Merseyside club next term.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Everton supporters can be seen below:
