Pundit Noel Whelan believes Everton’s Theo Walcott might leave the club this summer.
The Blues have had a few underperforming players this year which is why they sit 12th in the Premier League table, however some have disappointed with how frequently they have played.
Fabian Delph is included the list as the midfielder has made 16 league appearances, whilst Walcott has often been unavailable during his time at the Goodison Park, or hasn’t been impressive.
The 31-year-old winger has started 14 times this season for the Toffees and since he has a contract expiring in summer 2021 it would seem that he is running out of time to show his best.
Speaking to Football Insider, Whelan said:
“It has been a mixed bag from Walcott at Everton. I thought it was a great signing at first, I thought it would work for both player and club but it has not. Injuries again, a lack of confidence and a lack of goals and assists.
“He still has a lot to offer but I do not think it is going to be at Everton unfortunately and I think now you have got to forget about the name and think about the player and what he has done or two seasons which is not enough.
“Right now, you say Theo Walcott and you think about the name and everything he has done at Arsenal. But you need to forget about the name right now because he has not done enough in two seasons whilst he has been at Everton.”
Walcott arrived at Everton in January 2018 for £20m but he failed to show impressive performances for the Toffees.
