And with Walcott and the defender enjoying a special, friendly rivalry together at Arsenal, Bellerin put his own spin on his goodbye to his former team-mate.

Walcott decided to end his spell at the Emirates after failing to make a single Premier League start this season.

Despite having a close relationship with manager Arsene Wenger, the Arsenal boss agreed to sell Walcott in a bid to boost his World Cup chances.

Walcott is the second big signing of Sam Allardyce’s reign at Everton and follows £27m striker Cenk Tosun through the door at Goodison Park.
