According to reports from Sport, Barcelona have shortlisted Rondon as one of their potential striker targets and are open to making a move for the 26-year-old due to his successful prior spell in Spain with Las Palmas and Malaga.

Rondon managed nine Premier League goals following his £12 million move to West Bromwich Albion last season and although the towering striker is a key player for the Baggies, he might struggle to adapt to Barcelona’s playing style if indeed the transfer were to come into fruition.
