Boss Confirms Striker Interest

By on July 13, 2012

With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, three Premier League clubs are linked with Salomon Rondon.

Salomon Rondon

Malaga striker Salomon Rondon could be on his way to the Premier League this summer, according to Sky Sports News.

The report claims that Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are all interested in the Venezuelan striker after an excellent season in La Liga with Malaga.

Rondon joined the ambitious Spanish outfit in 2010 but has attracted interest from clubs throughout Europe after putting in some impressive displays, scoring 25 goals in 67 appearances.

Manager Manuel Luis Pellegrini has confirmed his striker has ‘substantial offers’ from clubs in England as well as Germany, but he hopes the 22-year-old will remain with the club this summer:

“Rondon has had substantial offers from both Germany and England.

“To stay here, to have time to demonstrate his worth, it has been important to Malaga and hopefully we can have him for longer.

“It is difficult to know what will happen.”

Pellegrini is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News

Football Talk Verdict

Arsenal are said to be drawing up a list of possible replacements for want-away striker Robin van Persie, while Chelsea are looking for a frontman to take over from Didier Drogba. New Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is also believed to be keen on strengthening his attacking options ahead of next season so all three could well be in for Rondon, as Sky Sports News suggest.

Rondon certainly has the physical presence needed to succeed in the Premier League and i think he could prove to be a decent buy, if he does come to these shores this summer.

    If Chelsea looses the physical part of their game, it will cost them a great deal. We need C. Azpilicueta, Hulk, Moses and a strong central mid-fielder like Fellaini or Witsel (to replace Essien whom is struggling with fitness). Hulk and Moses are needed in attack particularly cos they are intelligent, strong, skilfull, pacy and Moses is premiership-tested and performed against all the top premiership teams like Man u, liverpool, Arsenal and even Chelsea. CHELSEA! ENOUGH OF THE FEATHER-WEIGHT SIGNING AND GO FOR PLAYERS THAT ARE NEEDED NOT WANTED….. UP BLUES!!!

    I can understand up wanting to sign another striker/winger to increase competition but do we really need somebody like this who is unproven? Let’s not forget that we have sturridge who has only played 1 full season w/ chelsea in the PL and was our 2nd top scorer. Everyone comments on his selfishness but i think that his decision making will only get better this year. just remember as a striker at bolton he had 8 goals in 12 games. then he came back to chelsea instantly earned a starting stop and had 11 goals before christmas last season playing the whole time out of position. Sturridge is exactly the type of player Chelsea is always looking for- young (22) extremely fast, and can take on defenders 1 on 1. Let’s give him some time to develop his obvious talent before we discuss shipping him off. He is our Clear under 2 striker behind Torres right now and i think it would be a Big mistake to sell. He is still so extremely young and shows so much potential w/ an eye for goal. He just needs time to become a team player and with this new squad i think he will learn to do that. This year I think he will play as striker in some games but mostly as a winger. We haven’t had the chance to watch pre-season yet but just think about the pace and attacking threat we would have up front running a 4-2-3-1 w/ mata in the middle feeding hazard on the left coming in on his right, sturridge on the right coming in on his left and Torres down the middle. Just think of the head ache these guys will give defenders when they start doing give and go passes to each other.
    I don’t have issues w/ new signings but i don’t think we should sell one of our best young talents. Can’t wait for this season to start!

      omg i really appreciate that comment i totally agree with u on that i really like sturridge n i think he’s going to become a better overall player this year and as u said if we sell him it would b a big big mistake cuz he’s the type of player we always wanted n even avb said he got some of the qualities hulk had the player that the rest of chelsea supporters wants but i want di matteo to really test him in cf position this season cuz i know he will do a very good job!!
