According to a report from the Northern Echo, West Ham United have joined fellow Premier League clubs Newcastle United and Everton in the chase for West Brom’s loaned out striker Salomon Rondon.
West Brom’s loaned out striker Salomon Rondon is now attracting interest from West Ham United, along with loan club Newcastle United and Everton.
The Hammers are keen on an “attacking overhaul” and manager Manuel Pellegrini has identified Rondon as a potential option.
The striker’s performances on loan at Newcastle have been catching the eyes of potential suitors over the course of the season and with his spell at the Hawthorns seemingly set to come to an end at the end of the season, clubs are now starting to plot moves for the Venezuelan.
Rondon has been in impressive form for Newcastle throughout this season, impressing fans with his passion and determination. He has netted 10 goals since his arrival at St James’ Park, providing five assists along the way as well.
Now, it is being claimed that West Ham could move for Rondon if he does not join Newcastle. The 29-year-old has his heart set on a move to St James’ Park but several factors could block the permanent move he desires. Manager Rafa Benitez also wants to sign the striker permanently but it is unknown whether he will be staying at the club, and even if he does, whether he’ll be allowed to sign the number nine.
If the Baggies win promotion, buying clubs will have to pay more than the £16 million release clause which is in place if the club remains in the second tier of English football.
