Theo Walcott has revealed Wayne Rooney convinced him to join Everton.
Walcott signed for the Toffees from Arsenal this week as Sam Allardyce’s second big signing.
He follows Cenk Tosun as Allardyce looks to turn things around at Goodison Park.
And Walcott admits he spoke to Rooney about the move.
“He said all the golf courses are great! Just kidding, he’s not great at golf,” Walcott said.
“When you’re used to something for so long it’s a big decision to make. I got a sense from Wayne that the club was hungry. He felt like this was the right place and I totally agree with him.”
