Everton signing Theo Walcott revealed Wayne Rooney played a big role in his decision to make the move to Goodison Park.
Walcott, 28, completed a move from Arsenal to Everton Wednesday in a deal reportedly worth £20 million.
The attacker joins Rooney at the Premier League club and Walcott said his former England team-mate helped convince him to make the switch.
“I had numerous chats with Wayne and that was one massive factor which really tempted me to come to Everton,” Walcott told evertontv.
Walcott could be back at Arsenal in just a couple of weeks, with the Gunners set to host his new club in early February.
