  • New Rangers manager Steven Gerrard ‘should bid for Wayne Rooney’ should striker decide to leave Everton

Rooney has scored 11 goals in 40 appearances across all competitions for the Toffees this season.

Reports on Wednesday claimed Rooney's representatives had held discussions with MLS about a possible move which would see him earn £12.5m.

Everton spent nearly £200 million on players for then-manager Ronald Koeman last summer but it failed to have the desired effect, and Allardyce wants to prune a bloated squad before being more targeted in their transfer activity.

The Sun: Allardyce is set to be sacked with Everton players already talking about Marco Silva succeeding him. "But at the moment he's an Everton player and Everton fan".

Rooney could make the move ahead of the MLS transfer window opening on July 10 with a potential contract running until the end of the 2020 MLS season.

Wayne Rooney could once again be playing for a United team, but this time across the Atlantic.

Wayne Rooney's future may be in Major League Soccer after all.

Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez says the club must break their transfer record - the £16m paid for Michael Owen in 2005 - if they are to sign a striker to score double figures next season.

"A top quality player for me is the only player we should be looking at, " he added.

However the MLS club are persistent in their efforts to land the signature of a marquee forward and appear to be on the cusp of securing a move for Rooney. "Wayne loves his football, he loves training, he wants to play and play well like everybody else".

Rooney was born in Croxteth, UK on October 24, 1985.He joined the Everton youth team at nine and later made his professional debut at just 16 years old in 2002 for the club.
