Everton have made an enquiry about Theo Walcott’s availability ahead of a possible January move, according to a report from Oliver Todd of The Mail.

The 28-old has yet to start a Premier League game this season and his chances of being part of the England squad for the World Cup in Russia are looking slim unless he can start playing regular football.

Sam Allardyce selected Walcott in the only squad during his short spell as England manager and is said to be a big fan of the former Southampton man.
