Sam Allardyce: 'Theo Walcott can play wherever he likes'

Arsenal forward Walcott set for medical in Everton

Allardyce was unbeaten in his opening seven fixtures after he was handed the job following Ronald Koeman's dismissal.

The Everton boss Sam Allardyce told us all last week that he was very keen to sign the Arsenal winger Theo Walcott, but Arsene Wenger said it was far from being a done deal, and we know how Le Prof hates giving anything away on his transfer dealings. However, Allardyce does not appear to be guaranteeing him that sort of role in the event that Everton do manage to see off competition from the struggling Saints, who nurtured the player through their academy before losing him as a 16-year-old for an initial £5m fee in 2006.

Now Big Sam has reiterated that he is still hoping to get his signature, and is even promising the English worldwide a choice of positions he could play in "if we can get that far". We need to make sure we adjust and put that right as quickly as we can by putting points on the board.

Everton failed to muster a shot on target against a Harry Kane-inspired Tottenham team, who ran out comfortable winners.

Arsenal could be on the verge of losing two experienced forwards in a matter of days, with Everton hoping to complete a £20million deal for Theo Walcott.

"When you get a shock like that you absorb it, observe it and then explain to the players, 'Here is why you did not perform in the second half, lads'".

"If we show any complacency this Premier League will punish you because anybody can beat anybody so we have to make sure we are on song".

"But for Jordan Pickford they could have had more, so I'm hugely disappointed in the professionalism of my players today".
