Rondon eyes Premier League switch

Published Add your comment

Malaga striker Jose Salomon Rondon has signalled his desire to play in the Premier League, according to talkSPORT.

The Venezuelan international has been in sensational form for Malaga over the past two seasons, and his goals last year helped the Spanish side qualify for the Champions League.

The 22-year-old's representative revealed earlier this week that a host of Premier League clubs, including Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham had all been monitoring the forward's progress.

And Rondon has since confirmed his interest in one day plying his trade in the English top flight.

Speaking to Venezuelan newspaper El Espectador, Rondon said: "I have a contract with Malaga for the next two years, and if anyone wants me at his club in England, Germany or whatever, we will have to talk to the club. I'm attracted to the Premier League, the league is pretty interesting."

The £20million-rated striker joined Malaga from Spanish lower division side Las Palmas. But, after four years in Spanish football, the Venezuelan could be on his way to England.

The 6ft 1in forward scored 11 goals last season as Malaga finished fourth in La Liga. With Champions League qualification secure, it's unlikely that Rondon would be willing to move to a club outside the elite tournament, but Liverpool and Tottenham maintain their interest.

Liverpool have also been linked with Fiorentina star Juan Manuel Vargas, as Brendan Rodgers looks to bring in fresh faces following his Anfield appointment. Similarly, recently appointed Roberto Di Matteo may look to strengthen his Stamford Bridge squad further following the additions of Eden Hazard and Marko Marin.

Rondon could be a ready-made replacement for the recently departed Didier Drogba, but the Blues have also been tracking Porto striker Hulk and Napoli frontman Edinson Cavani.
