Transfer news: Walcott reveals why he left Arsenal for Everton after 12 years

  Theo Walcott has said he left Arsenal for Everton, because he is “ambitious” and wants to “push himself to the next level”.

The 28-year-old on Wednesday completed a £20million move to Goodison Park, ending a 12-year stint with the Gunners in which he scored 108 goals.

This season, Walcot only made six Premier League appearances, all as a subsitute.

“I’m very ambitious and I’ve come here because I want the club to push to the next level.

“And with the players that have come in, I feel like the next level can be reached.

“I’m very excited to be starting a new chapter and I felt this was the right place for me to be.

“The manager is very ambitious and I feel like the club is going in the right direction.

“Everton is a club with a great history. The fans are always passionate, they’re great and I always used to find it very tough playing here.

“The club has won trophies but I want them to win trophies now. The manager is very hungry and it’s just what I need. I’ve had a couple of chats with him and straightaway I felt that hunger and that desire that he wanted from me. I need that and I wanted that.

“I want to be part of something which he’s building and, like I said before, it’s a very ambitious club,” he said at his unveiling.
