Serie A giants challenge Newcastle United for West Bromwich Albion star
Where Salomon Rondon will be playing next season remains a mystery.
The West Bromwich Albion striker, who has a year left on his deal at The Hawthorns, is unlikely to remain at the club after their failed to make an immediate return to the Premier League.
There are a host of top flight clubs, though, who have an interest in Rondon, but no side have made any significant moves to secure the Venezuelan’s signature.
Rondon enjoyed an impressive season on-loan at Newcastle United last year, netting 11 goals and bagging the club’s player of the season award, but his long term future remains up in the air.
It is believed that the 29-year-old is keen to return to the North East, but uncertainty over Rafael Benitez’s future, twinned with owner Mike Ashley’s reluctance to splash out on players of a certain age, has left a return to Tyneside in doubt.
Then there is West Ham, who are managed currently by Rondon’s former Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini, and Albion’s rivals Wolves who are in search of sufficient competition for talisman Raul Jimenez, although recent reports said they are put off by the £16.5million fee.
Rondon also has admirers in Turkey, in the shape of Fenerbahce, and they’ve reportedly offered a substantial salary to relocate to the Super Lig.
The former Zenit striker is currently weighing up his options – on international duty – before clubs around the country return for pre-season training, but what are the bookies saying about where he is likely to play next term?
