Everton management want Wayne Rooney to stay next season.

Manager Sam Allardyce says it is his job to improve the quality of football on show at Everton next season, as speculation about his future at the club continues to grow following sustained criticism from fans.

Sky Sports reported the 63-year-old will be informed at a meeting with majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri as early as Wednesday that his services are no longer required as Moshiri reacts to fans' growing discontent with the former England manager.

Former Watford manager Marco Silva is the favourite to take over and could complete the move to Goodison Park six months after the club failed to prise him away from Vicarage Road.

According to reports in the Turkish media, Everton have already made an enquiry for Oguzhan Ozyakup, with the playmaker told he can leave Besiktas for €12m this summer.

'It is as much as Wayne, his representatives and the board of administrators and what they do, which is the place it's in the intervening time, ' Allardyce mentioned.

Allardyce secured eighth place for Everton in the Premier League after just two defeats in their final nine league matches.

On Tuesday morning, The Mirror put out a story saying things could get more complicated for Everton, since there's another club in the race for Silva.
