‘Straight swap for Adama?’ – Wolves fans discuss Salomon Rondon links

Salomon Rondon will cost £16.5m.

Wolverhampton Wanderers will rival Newcastle United for Salomon Rondon this summer, according to The Daily Mail.

Rondon scored 12 goals (including 11 in the league) in 33 games on loan at Newcastle this season. But his future is uncertain as he returns to West Brom.

Newcastle would like to make Rondon’s move permanent. Working alongside Ayoze Perez, the Venezuela international has been an important part of Rafa Benitez’s plans.

However, the Magpies are trying to drive down West Brom’s asking price. With the Baggies set for another season in the second-tier, Rondon’s £16.5m release clause is active.

Newcastle are exploring the possibility of using Dwight Gayle as a makeweight but Wolves could pounce. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side might trigger Rondon’s release clause.

Wolves have Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota as a front two and this pairing has been devastatingly effective. But after a seventh-place finish, Wolves could qualify for the Europa League.

Nuno knows he needs squad depth to cope with the demand of European fixtures. And Rondon has been identified as a target.

The powerful 29-year-old would add strength in depth for Wolves. And this is what some members of the Wolves fanbase think about signing Rondon.
