Contact already made, Everton summer signing exit could be already on the cards – report


Everton striker Salomon Rondon is being chased by Super Lig club Sivasspor in the January transfer window, according to a report by Fanatik.

The Venezuela striker, 32, joined the Toffees on a free transfer during the summer transfer window and has since struggled to make an impact at the Merseyside club.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is currently out injured. It was thought initially that Rondon would fill his void, but he has been hugely disappointing.

The latest report from Turkey suggests that the striker’s agent has alerted Sivasspor of Rondon’s possibility of leaving the Merseyside club mid-way through the season.

Everton signed Rondon, beating Sivasspor on the Deadline Day. However, the Turkish club have a chance now to snap him up in January.

Rondon is yet to score in seven Premier League appearances or in the Carabao Cup. He has contributed anything in terms of providing assists for others.

Everton boss will hope that Calvert-Lewin will return shortly from injury and he will form the deadly combo with Richarlison in the attack once again.

Then, there is the promising youngster Ellis Simms. Benitez has previously spoken highly of Simms, who has just penned a new deal at the club.

If Everton sign a new striker, which we should, Rondon will further drop down the pecking order and will become surplus to requirements.

At the moment, it looks difficult for Rodon to leave Everton, but the club could be willing to let him go if they can sign a good striker in January.
