Wayne Rooney tempted me to move to Everton: Theo Walcott

Hands in the air Cenk Tosun

Now, Walcott will leave Arsenal and join Everton for a reported transfer fee that could be higher than £20,000,000.

The England worldwide has been at Arsenal since joining as a 16-year-old in 2006 from Southampton.

In turn, Walcott told in the interview: "I've had numerous chats with Wayne and he is the massive factor, who tempted me to move to Everton".

"There are some great players, but it's hard for them to make that breakthrough and I would like to open the door for them".

Popular bookmakers SkyBET have listed the Toffees as 8/1 outsiders in the race to sign Foxes hitman Jamie Vardy, as Sam Allardyce looks to continue his overhaul of Everton's attacking options.

Walcott was the third-highest English goalscorer last season, with 19 goals in 29 starts for the Gunners, placing him behind only Spurs' Harry Kane and Dele Alli. He is the second signing for manager Sam Allardyce, who also brought in Turkish worldwide forward Cenk Tosun during his first transfer window with the club.

Are you serious: City can still slip up - Jones
City had been beaten 4-3 by Liverpool in a dramatic game on Sunday, Pep Guardiola's side's first domestic defeat this season. You never know, it happened in 2012 to us, so why not? He said: " When a manager like Pep praises you it means a lot ".

'There was a club that was interested in me but I do not want to name them. He wants to play every week and really take his career forward again.

BREAKING: Theo Walcott has passed medical and agreed personal terms with Everton ahead of transfer from Arsenal.

After a bright start to life under Allardyce, the Toffees have seen their form dip in recent weeks and are without a win in their last five league outings, with their last victory coming almost a month ago. There has been a little dip - but that happens and it is how you get out of that which makes you stronger. I feel like the players have got a point to prove, I have got a point to prove and it is going to get the best out of us, I am sure. The manager will pick his team depending on who we play against. I want to be part of something'.

The Englishman spent 12 years at the Emirates but arguably failed to live up to the huge hype that surrounded him at the time of his move from Southampton.

He said: "I can say that Everton was the first team that seriously wanted me, and I seriously wanted to come here".

Speaking about this induction into the Hall of Fame, Allardyce told reporters, "I am thrilled to have reached this memorable milestone and very proud to join some of the greats of football management in the LMA Hall of Fame 1000 Club".
