What The Papers Say - 13 January

The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.

Sam Allardyce's admission that he is interested in bringing Arsenal attacker Theo Walcott to Everton is widely reported in Saturday's newspapers.

The Daily Express quotes Toffees manager Allardyce saying the purchase of Walcott would not represent a risk, given the England international's proven Premier League pedigree.

And the Daily Star features Allardyce claiming Walcott would provide his side with "balance" and be joining a "club moving in the right direction" should he swap Arsenal for the Blues.

One player has already signed in at Goodison Park in this transfer window - and the Daily Mail provides the lowdown on new Blues' striker Cenk Tosun.

Turkey international Tosun could potentially be in line for an Everton debut in today's Premier League match with Tottenham Hotspur. And the London club's boss Mauricio Pochettino tells a number of publications he considers the Toffees' ex-Spurs winger Aaron Lennon an "inspiration".

The Liverpool Echo assesses who could potentially be poised for a Goodison exit in January and runs a comment piece comparing Allardyce's turnaround of Everton with the rousing leadership of former prime minister of the United Kingdom, Winston Churchill.

And the Daily Telegraph is one of a number of papers to report on Wayne Rooney's part in helping Trading Standards investigators convict a criminal who was selling fake football memorabilia.
