Arsenal winger Theo Walcott undergoes medical at Everton ahead of £20m move

Providing there are no last-minute hitches, within the next 24 hours Walcott, Arsenal's longest-serving player, should become Allardyce's second signing of the transfer window.

With Alexis Sanchez seemingly on the verge of leaving Arsenal, Arsene Wenger is now set to lose another attacking player as Walcott travels to Merseyside on Tuesday for a medical ahead of the transfer, according to theLiverpool Echo.

His former club Southampton and West Ham United were both keen to land Walcott, but both wanted loan deals - whilst Everton have moved to seal a permanent deal.

Arsenal's longest-serving player Walcott has scored 108 goals for the club but has found game time hard to come by this season in a year when he is desperate to be included in Gareth Southgate's England squad for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

A body found earlier last week is believed to be another of the 32 crew members, which included 30 Iranians and two Bangladeshis . But the tanker, called the Sanchi , has now sunk after being adrift and on fire for a week, Chinese media reported.

If the England global does depart Arsenal, he will be ending a 12-year spell, in which he made 397 appearances and scored 108 goals. He has only scored more than 10 league goals in one of his 11 full seasons with the club, finishing with 14 in 2012-13.

Southampton are also said to be interested, but Everton are considered favourites for the 28-year-old.

If a deal goes through, Arsenal plan to use the funds to buy Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bordeaux forward Malcom.

Everton are in the market for forward reinforcements this month as Sam Allardyce, a long-term admirer of Walcott, looks to add more goals to his side.
