Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer news and rumours, including Victor Lindelof to Fenerbahce, Samu Omorodion to West Ham United and Mats Hummels to Roma.

Fenerbahce manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly interested in a reunion with Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof.

After being appointed Fenerbahce boss earlier this month, Mourinho is looking to strengthen his squad ahead of his first Turkish Super Lig campaign.

According to Fotomac, the former Man United manager has identified Lindelof as a potential option to bolster Fenerbahce's defensive options.

Mourinho wants to sign the 29-year-old for the second time in his managerial career after previously signing him at Man United in 2017.

With Lindelof set to enter the final 12 months of his contract, there is a suggestion that Man United will sanction his departure for a €8m (£6.8m) fee.

Lindelof is believed to be keen to reunite with his former boss, especially as the potential move would allow him to receive more game time.

The Sweden international is currently behind Harry Maguire and Lisandro Martinez in the pecking order and is likely to drop even further as Man United continue to pursue defensive reinforcements.

West Ham fail with Omorodion bid

West Ham United have reportedly had a bid rejected for Atletico Madrid's highly-rated striker Samu Omorodion.

Atletico signed Omorodion from Granada last summer, before ending him out on loan to fellow La Liga side Alaves for the 2023-24 season.

The 20-year-old enjoyed an encouraging campaign with the Basque side, scoring nine goals and providing one assist in 35 top-flight appearances.

Although his loan spell has come to an end, there is some uncertainty as to whether he will be an Atletico player for next season.

According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, West Ham submitted a €35m (£29.6m) proposal for the Atletico forward two weeks ago.

The Spanish club subsequently rejected the bid, but it remains to be seen whether the Hammers will return with an improved bid amid competition from Italian giants Roma.

West Ham are keen to bolster their centre-forward options which currently include Michail Antonio and Danny Ings.

Roma keen to sign Hummels

Over in Italy, Roma are reportedly interested in signing Mats Hummels on a free transfer this summer.

Hummels is set to bid farewell to Borussia Dortmund for the second time in his career after it was recently confirmed that he will leave when his contract expires at the end of the month.

As a result, the experienced defender will become a free agent this summer, making him an appealing proposition for a number of clubs.

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, Roma are one of the clubs chasing his signature, having already made contact with the player's representatives.

The German has been earning €3.7m a season as part of his Dortmund deal, and his wages are not believed to be an obstacle for Roma.

However, the defender is open to reducing his salary if the Italian club are willing to offer him a two-year contract with an option for a further 12 months.

Roma boss Daniele De Rossi is keen to recruit a new centre-back, with Chris Smalling and Dean Huijsen set to depart this summer.

Smalling is out of contract at the end of the month, while Huijsen will return to Juventus following a six-month loan spell.
