Wolves fans react to Salomon Rondon links

Wolves fans have been reacting to reports of interest from the club in Salomon Rondon.

The Sunday Mirror (13/12; page 62) claimed the Venezuela international is on Nuno Espirito Santo’s radar, as the manager prepares to cope without Raul Jimenez.

As everyone knows, the Mexican suffered a fractured skull two weeks ago against Arsenal, and will supposedly be on the sidelines for a while.

At the moment, the only out-and-out striker in the first-team is Fabio Silva.

Silva arrived at the club during the last transfer window for a reported £35.6 million fee (BBC Sport), and may now be needed more than Nuno had hoped at this stage.

Rondon, of course, is a former Premier League striker having had stints with Newcastle United and West Brom.

He’s scored 35 goals in the English top-flight, but has been plying his trade over in the Chinese Super League with Dalian Professional FC for the past 18 months.

Rondon, now 31, was hoping to stay at Newcastle before his move to the Far East, so it could be that he is keen on a Premier League return.

That said, he reportedly pockets £250,000-a-week at Dalian (via Chronicle) so that could complicate matters.

On social media, some Wolves fans were actually open to the idea of seeing Rondon come in as short-term cover for Jimenez:
