At the tail end of last week, the Wolverhampton Wanderers summer transfer rumour mill sparked into action with a new name in the frame as a potential signing – West Bromwich Albion striker Salomon Rondon.

The Venezuelan international impressed plenty at The Hawthorns following his arrival back in 2015, but this season he headed out to Newcastle United for a loan spell and has hit 12 goals for them across their Premier League season.

With Newcastle seeming to dither about his signing as they focus on Rafa Benitez’s future, we have now apparently identified him as alternative cover and an additional option for Raul Jimenez.

The original report is above to save overly repeating myself, but in any event, with a reported release fee of only £16.5million, Wolves certainly wouldn’t baulk at that if we want him.

Reacting to the news on social media, the report certainly received a positive response as Rondon’s style of play as a big target man is something we lack as although he’s not as technical as Raul, he is more physical for me.
