West Ham are being linked with a move for Manchester United's veteran forward Wayne Rooney.

The 31-year-old former England captain is set to end a 13-year association with the Red Devils this summer which has alerted a number of Premier League clubs - one of whom is said to be West Ham.

* In other transfer news today, the Hammers are reported to be hot on the trail of Bologna forward Simone Verdi, who moved to I Veltri via Milan last summer in a 1.3million switch.

The 24-year-old - who has previously featured for the Italian Under 19s and Under 21s - has been watched by Hammers scouts in recent weeks and scored during their 4-1 defeat of Chievo last weekend.

* Udinese midfielder Jakub Jankto is another young prospect whose progress has been monitored by West Ham in recent weeks, say Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Czech midfielder, 21, has enjoyed a solid season in Serie A with Zebrette and is also said to be interesting Tony Pulis and West Bromwich Albion. He joined his current club in 2014 from Slavia Prague in a deal worth 700,000.
