The England international joined for around £20m after twelve years at The Gunners, and says that he will bring goals and assists to this Everton team – something that is desperately needed.
‘I just want to work hard to get in the team here. I’ll be judged on goals and I was pleased with my goals last season. That’s what I want to bring into this team: the goals, the assists,’ he said.
Manager Allardyce is happy with the signing, adding, ‘He’s got goals. For us that’s a very important ingredient where we are short in terms of creating goals.
‘He wanted a fresh start. He’s exceptionally good from a wide position.’
