It looks like Salomon Rondon could be on his way back to the Premier League, with Rafa Benitez eyeing a reunion at Everton.
This comes via an ‘exclusive’ from The Sun’s Tom Barclay, who reports that the former Newcastle United hitman will be released from his contract at Dalian Pro due to the financial issues they’re following the global pandemic.
As a result, he’s set to become available on a free transfer and is believed to be attracting plenty Premier League interest, with Rafa Benitez already at the front of the queue.
Barclay states that the Spaniard wants to add some extra firepower to Everton’s attack, and it seems Rondon has been identified as an ideal back-up option Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
The Venezuelan bagged 12 goals and seven assists during his one season under Benitez at St James’ Park, following that with 14 goals and seven assists when the pair were reunited in China.
The 31-year-old would be an ideal signing for us – he’d command no transfer fee, knows the club well, is adored by fans and could be brilliant alongside Callum Wilson – however our lack of activity so far this summer suggests this could be another opportunity that passes us by.
