FOOTBALL- Premier League club Everton is in talks to sign Arsenal forward Theo Walcott on a permanent deal, says club manager Sam Allardyce.
Allardyce said, "I don't think there's a chance of a loan. It's not imminent but negotiations are going on."
"He's scored 100 goals for Arsenal from wide positions," said Allardyce. "His pace is a key strength which we lack. To add goals would be very important for me. And he's only 28."
Walcott joined Arsenal for £5m from Southampton in 2006.
