Report: West Ham and Wolves want Everton target Salomon Rondon

West Ham and Wolves have shown an interest in Salomon Rondon as Everton look to sign the striker in the final hours of the transfer window, according to a report from the Daily Mail.

Rondon is reportedly hoping to leave Dalian Professional on loan. He spent some time on loan at CSKA Moscow during the second-half of last season.

And it seems that a host of clubs are keen to bring him back to the Premier League.

According to the Daily Mail, Everton are monitoring the 31-year-old’s situation. Rafa Benitez, of course, knows the Venezuelan from his time at Newcastle.

But West Ham, Wolves and Leicester have also shown an interest.

Rondon loan would be shrewd move for likes of West Ham or Everton

Rondon is edging towards the twilight of his career. He turns 32 next month. And he has spent a couple of years away in China and Russia.

His career record is not remarkable. He has not scored more than 14 league goals in a single season during his career.

But he was a consistent goalscorer in the Premier League with West Brom and Newcastle.

And on loan, a deal could be a really good piece of business for the likes of West Ham and Everton. Admittedly, he apparently earns £250,000-a-week in China.

Both clubs could do with further reinforcements up front. The Hammers, in particular, do lack options beyond Michail Antonio in that area of the field.

And a temporary deal for Rondon may make a lot of sense at this stage of the window.
