Solomon Rondon battle emerging

West Bromwich Albion could be ready to sell Solomon Rondon, with Liverpool, Everton and Chelsea all making contact with The Baggies in the last week.

The 28-year-old Venezuela striker has emerged as a shock target for West Brom’s Premier League rivals, after they were made aware that a deal could possibly be done.

West Brom would want close to £20million for Rondon who has claimed 20 Premier League goals since joining from Zenit St Petersburg.

Whilst not prolific, Rondon has adapted well to life in the Premier League and he is now attracting genuine interest.

Merseyside duo Liverpool and Everton are both considering him, whilst I understand Chelsea see him as an alternative to Edin Dzeko – should their bid to land the Roma striker fall through.

West Brom boss Alan Pardew has targets in mind this month but needs to raise cash first – which is why they are ready to sell the likes of Rondon and team-mate Jonny Evans, who has been interesting Arsenal and Man City.

Bookmakers currently make Liverpool the likeliest to land Rondon should he leave with BetVictor making them 2/1, ahead of Chelsea at 4/1 and Everton 8/1.
