Everton have made enquiries about Theo Walcott's January availability as Sam Allardyce looks to the Arsenal forward to boost his frontline.

Allardyce is desperate to find Premier League quality reinforcements to his squad to guide Everton up the table having taken over as boss last week.

Walcott fits that criteria and the Toffees have asked about the England international, who is yet to start a top-flight game this season.

Allardyce picked Walcott in the only squad of his short-lived reign as England manager, bringing him on as his second substitute in September's 1-0 win over Slovakia.

Now, the new Everton boss sees Walcott as a solution to the lack of pace he inherited in the sluggish side sacked predecessor Ronald Koeman assembled in the summer.
