It is understood Walcott – who is also wanted by West Ham – could be keen on the move, according to the Mirror.

Koeman is also interested in making it a double raid and bringing in Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud for £20m.

Everton want another wide-man, with Yannick Bolasie out until the end of the year with a horror knee injury.

They have also shown interest and enquired about the availability of Leicester ace Demarai Gray.

Koeman’s incredible spending spree is also set to continue with the £45m switch of Swansea star Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Frenchman Giroud has grown frustrated at Arsenal and wants to leave due to a lack of first-team football.

Walcott is in the same situation, with Arsene Wenger attempting a mini overhaul of his squad after missing out on the Champions League.

The ex-Southampton youngster joined the Gunners in 2006 for around £12m, and has gone on to make 260 Premier League appearances, scoring 65 goals.
