Salomon Rondon

Malaga ace Salomon Rondon could be on his way to the Premier League this summer with Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool are all tracking the striker, according to the Daily Mail.

The report claims that Rondon has attracted interest from all over Europe after bagging 11 goals in 37 appearances last term to help Malaga secure champions league football next season.

The 22-year-old’s agent Pablo Martinez has confirmed a number of approaches have been made by English clubs for his clients services, with Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham all said to be in the running.

However, the trio will face competition from Germany for the Venezuelan  international, who Malaga rate at around £20m.

The clubs ambitious Qatari owners will only consider selling Rondon if they can replace him with a big-name striker as they take on the unenviable task of challenging Barcelona and Real Madrid.

    Defoe scored more from the bench sorry 11 goals is not impressive at all.

      90% of his goals were from the bench.
      Van Nistelrooy had to give way as a starter in the team so Rondon could play. The result: Malaga will play Champions. Please read a bit before commenting.

    liverpool should consider luuk de jong. I think he is better player to randon. We need someone who can score goals. An effective finisher is what we need right now and not something else.

    A player that scored 11 goals from the bench to be precisely featured in, I think about 15 games, he is a great player to me.

      anoto 11 esta temporada, la pasada fueron 14. en esta temporada sento a van nistelroy que aun con su edad hace gol, rondon estuvo mitad de temporada en la banca hasta que pellegrini vio que estaba mejor que nistelroy.

And a host of many others) who can effect changes and yet refuse 2 buy but are talking about letting players Skrtel go in d middle of trying 2 revive d club. Pls if u r dis confused not read our comments den u ppl shld stop askin 4 dem and our support. Who is Rondon wen player lyk luuk, Jackson Martinez and even Tello of barca are all waitin 2 b bought?

      Liverpool almost seem to go for 10 players almost in every transfer window but end up buying 1 or 2 low rated stars. I think Sigurdsson and De Jong would fit great.

    11 goals “argument” counts exactly for NOT buying him!
    even torres with his hands & legs tied scored 4-5! and he played less than 37 games!

    Matias Suarez available for £15m – same for Gaston Ramirez. Get them both they’re real class – forget the rest. What a forward line: Ramirez – Suarez – Suarez and then we’ve still got the Brits (Downing – Carroll – Belamy) for those games at Stoke.

    11 goals in how many games we need some who can score more than that at least one every two games. what rubbish is this, is it his agent must be, unless he’s a world class english player !!!!!!

    Think most of us Liverpool fans are being a little optimistic with these possible European based class strikers. Were probably just end up with a player that finished way down our league somewhere like mosses. I seem to remember a lot of fans thinking charley Adam was going to be the next big thing but look what happened there. We want champions league so we are competing with the likes of Chelsea etc and there bringing in stars like hazard and hulk so rogers better bring in some pretty good players if were to get any where near champions league . Seems to me just judging by the new signings alone that the top teams are just pulling further clear of us each year. Let’s hope rogers can change that

    Between the likes of luuk de jong,Castaignos,borini and Salomon randon.I think that luuk de jong is a better option.
