According to The Sun, Rooney had the honour once for England in a friendly against Brazil in Doha and for Manchester United when more senior players were not available.
But now, Rooney, 25, wants both armbands on a permanent basis.
He said: "Yeah, I think that would be a great honour. I''ve captained both on one-off occasions but obviously to get the two jobs full-time would be a great honour for me."
“To lead the team out at Wembley would be particularly special,” he added.
But England''s new home of football has not been that happy a place for the national side and Rooney thinks he knows why.
He said: "When we play away from home, the other team are playing in front of their fans urging them to go forward.
"Then the game becomes a bit open and I think that''s when we are at our best, so that''s why we do so well away from home.
"At Wembley, teams sit back and get 11 men behind the ball. Sometimes, it becomes hard to break them down, so you need to be a bit more patient,” Rooney said. (ANI)
