Inevitable interest in West Brom star emerges



Atletico Madrid and Internazionale are both interested in signing recently relegated West Bromwich Albion striker Salomon Rondon.

According to Sky Sports, the La Liga and Serie A outfits are both eyeing a move for the Venezuelan forward.

The 28-year-old signed for the Baggies from Zenit St Petersburg in 2015, and has gone on to score 28 goals in his 102 appearances for the club across all competitions.

Both sides will be playing in European competitions next season, which will undoubtedly be an attractive thought for the striker.

Rondon was also recently linked with a potential summer transfer to West Ham. With the forward having played under new Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini at Malaga previously, it could give them the edge.

Chelsea were also rumoured to have enquired about Salomon Rondon during this January’s transfer window, before their eventual signing of Olivier Giroud.

West Brom finished bottom of the Premier League, finishing the campaign with 31 points, despite Darren Moore’s best efforts to keep the Baggies in England’s top flight for another season.

The Verdict

Darren Moore was rightly given a chance managing West Brom on a permanent basis next season, and if he can hold on to their star striker, could see themselves do well.

But when big European teams comes asking, it may be hard for Rondon to say no, especially when both sides can offer Champions League football next season.

The Baggies need to keep hold of their key players if they are the bounce back next season, and Rondon is certainly high up on that list.
