Benitez preparing bargain move to bring former Newcastle United star to Everton – Report

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.

  1. Rafa is no longer Newcastle manager & Rondon is no longer a Newcastle player … so why is this a story for an NUFC blog??

    Because there’s plenty of interest in both, with them being two very popular figures at NUFC.

    You may not care but plenty are intrigued by how Benitez gets on at Everton and also want to see us sign Rondon now he’s eyeing a move back to the EPL.

    Also – it’s our job to keep the blog busy and it’s not like there’s much news coming out of Newcastle United itself!
