Here's a complete report of the latest transfer updates making the rounds:

Rooney set for Everton return

It is suggested that Everton are determined to sign Wayne Rooney this summer. According to Norrion News and other sources reaching in from England, it is almost “inevitable” that United's record highest goal scorer will don the Blue jersey again.

It is understood Wayne Rooney have been withdrawn from Manchester United squad that'll head to the U.S for the club's preseason tour, with his move to Everton set to be completed this week. The England forward return to Everton comes thirteen years after he left Goodison Park for Old Trafford. Rooney will continue to earn $323,000 per week with the Toffees, having chosen to return to his boyhood club with no Major League Soccer offers on the table and no desire to “uproot” his family to China.

West Brom loses bid to sign Silva

After almost joining Leicester City last term, Adrien Silva is now ready to leave Sporting Lisbon in search of a new challenge elsewhere.

West Bromwich Albion are big admirers of the 28-year-old midfielder, and they were one of the several EPL clubs hoping to sign him. But, according to Footballs First, West Bromwich Albion have pulled out of the race to sign the Sporting Lisbon captain after he “snubbed” their approach. Adrien Silva reportedly has no interest in joining a club which is not playing in the UEFA Champions League next term. The Baggies' failure to land the Portugal international could be good news for fellow EPL side Tottenham Hotspur, who are still being linked with a move for Adrien Silva.

Juventus step up chase for Ünder

Cengniz Ünder impressed during his debut season for Turkish Super Lig club İstanbul Başakşehir last term, and he has been dubbed the “Turkish Paulo Dybala” by Juventus. Manchester United and Chelsea have been alerted to the striker's talent, and he has already spoken of his desire to play in the English Premier League. According to Turkish Football, Juve are now also in the running, and the Italian champions could make a formal bid for the 19-year-old midfielder in the coming days.

Juventus were watching Cengniz Under the last term, and they were impressed by his role in Başakşehir's second placed finish in the Turkish Super Lig.

The Istanbul club is well aware of the interest in the 19-year-old, but they've already told the teen star it would be in his best interest to stay with the club for one more season.
