Theo Walcott may have an uncertain future at Everton after struggling for consistency last season. The 30-year-old was short of form in 2018/19 and may not hold down a starting place in 2019/20 if recent reports are to be believed. Everton may be looking to sign Walcott’s replacement, with Goal France saying that Yacine Brahimi could be on his way to Goodison Park this summer.
Brahimi’s contract expired at FC Porto and he’s now a free agent. The 29-year-old spent five years at the Estadio do Dragao, scoring and creating 97 goals in 215 appearances in all competitions. He would improve the Everton squad, given Marco Silva only has Richarlison, Bernard and Walcott to chose from on the wing, but Brahimi’s potential arrival may spell the end for the latter.
In the Premier League, Walcott scored only two goals in 2019 and didn’t register an assist after September. The £100k-per-week wide-man lost his place in the final few months of 2018/19 which could leave a void for Brahimi to fill should he be signed and impress at Goodison Park.
Goal France believe Everton are very keen to get a deal done, so the Algerian international may be on his way in the coming weeks.
