Wolves line up West Brom striker Salomon Rondon swoop

By Tim Spiers | Wolves | Published:

Salomon Rondon could become the first man in 25 years to cross the Black Country divide with Wolves looking to swoop for the £16million West Bromwich Albion man.

Salomon Rondon is a man in demand

The Express & Star understands Rondon, who spent this season on loan at Newcastle, is interested in moving to Molineux.

The striker has a £16m release clause which Wolves are happy to meet

There are a number of clubs interested in the player, including Newcastle where he has just picked up the player of the season accolade after scoring 15 goals.

The 29-year-old is out of contract at the Hawthorns next summer and Wolves see him as ideal competition for Raul Jimenez.

Having finish seventh – and with European football on the way if Manchester City win the FA Cup final today – they've become an attractive proposition.

It's understood no move is imminent, however, with the players set to explore his options. Wolves have a number of targets for what they see as a key signing this summer to help share the load with Mexican front-man Jimenez, who netted 17 times this season.

Left-back Paul Edwards was the last player to make the switch between the two rivals when moving from Wolves to West Brom in January 1994.

Wolves last signed a player from Albion when they bought South African striker John Paskin way back in 1989.
