West Ham United Confident Of Landing Newcastle United Target: The Toon Cannot Let Him Leave

According to the latest reports from the Daily Star, West Ham United are confident about landing Venezuelan striker Salomon Rondon who returned to West Bromwich Albion after his successful loan spell with Newcastle United. The Hammers believe that they can offer the 29-year-old forward better personal terms and that could be enough to lure him to the London Stadium. Meanwhile, Wolves and Everton are also said to be in the mix for the experienced forward. Wolves feel that with Europa League football, they might be able to land the striker.

All these updates are going to be a big blow for Newcastle United as they have been linked with the Venezuelan in the past few months. After the impact he had for them in the Premier League, it was imperative for the Magpies to sign a player like Rondon. The 29-year-old’s buy out clause is said to be £16.5m.

There is still uncertainty about Rafael Benitez’s future, and until that is sorted, Newcastle United are unlikely to sign the striker. Therefore the club needs to come to a decision soon. The Magpies have been reluctant to shell out big money for the players, and the fact that Rondon is going to be 30 soon is probably making Mike Ashley sceptical about spending over £15m for him.

Why Newcastle need him?

However, this can come back to bite the club in the next season as Rondon was the talismanic man for them this season. The striker managed an impressive tally of 11 goals and seven assists, and that allowed the Magpies to stay in the Premier League comfortably after their disastrous start to the campaign.

It is believed that Rondon will take his time to come to a decision and until and unless Newcastle United sort their manager situation, the Venezuelan is unlikely to commit to a new club. Therefore that showcases that he might prefer a move to Newcastle United in the first place, a club where he settled in well and is adored by the fans.

Almost all of Newcastle United’s attacking plans depended on Rondon as he provided an out ball and his physical presence allowed him to involve the likes of Ayoze Perez in front of goal. His finishing and work rate was also impressive, and the club will make a grave mistake if they allow him to join West Ham or Wolves.

Why West Ham and Wolves will be tough to beat?

Both the clubs have shown that they are willing to spend the big bucks in the transfer market in the past year and this can cost the Magpies in their quest to sign the striker permanently in the next season.
