Salomon Rondon is wanted by Newcastle, West Ham and Aston Villa.

Rondon has scored 28 goals in 57 games for Zenit St. Petersburg, and VTV has reported that he is wanted by three Premier League teams this summer.

Newcastle, West Ham and Aston Villa are all linked with signing the 25-year-old striker, a Venezuelan international, as they look for attacking reinforcements with the Premier League season just days away.

His agent addressed the rumours, and although he did not name a side, he confirmed that there is a ‘very good offer’ on the table for Rondon.

He said: “There is a very clear choice for Salomon to go to the Premier League today. This makes us very happy, especially Salomon, who is waiting to make a decision.”

The report states that a decision should be made before too long, as Rondon assesses all options concerning his future. He wants to leave Zenit this summer, and the Premier League looks the most likely option for a move.

Who is Salomon Rondon?

Rondon, 25, is a striker who has played for Las Palmas, Rubin Kazan and Malaga in his career. He currently turns out for Zenit, and has an impressive goalscoring record despite playing in different leagues.

He is still young enough to keep developing, and possesses all the talented needed to be a top level striker. He has a natural eye for goal, a reliable and consistent finishing prowess, and has the physical traits needed to lead the line in a 4-2-3-1 system.

He looks well suited to English football, and all the teams interested in him would be wise to move for the striker in the coming weeks.
