The 31-year-old made 29 appearances for Everton last season but has only featured for Carlo Ancelotti once this season after the arrival of James Rodriguez and Allan.

It is believed that Newcastle, Crystal Palace and West Ham are all interested in his services but Walcott wants to move back to the south coast.

Southampton welcomed midfielder Ibrahima Diallo from Brest on Sunday.
