Everton has completed the signing of Theo Walcott from Arsenal in a deal reportedly worth £20 million ($28 million).

The England international was also linked with West Ham and former club Southampton, but will instead attempt to revitalise his career at Everton, signing a three-and-a-half-year deal at Goodison Park after falling out of favor at Arsenal.

Walcott has made almost 400 appearances for Arsenal, scoring 108 goals, but his first-team opportunities shriveled up this term and he has played just 47 minutes in six Premier League substitute appearances.
