Salomon Rondon linked with Everton exit as club ‘will push all the conditions’ to sign striker in January


Salomon Rondon has been linked with a move away from Everton – less than three months after his arrival.

According to Turkish media outlet Fanatik, the striker is wanted by Sivasspor in January.

Rondon moved to Goodison Park on a free transfer from Chinese side Dalian on summer transfer deadline day.

He penned a two-year deal, with the option of a third.

However, Rondon’s struggled at the Toffees. He was thrown into the deep end following injuries to Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin but has failed to score in eight games.

As a result, the former Newcastle striker opted to meet up with Venezuela during the international break.

In an Instagram post, he admitted he was ‘really affected’ by not having a pre-season and the number of matches he played.

It has now been claimed that Sivasspor, who are 15th in the Super Lig, have made ‘significant progress’ in their attempt to sign Rondon.

Fanatik reports that Sivasspor ‘will push all the conditions’ to sign the forward during the January transfer window.

Although Rondon’s started life at Everton slowly, resulting in him receiving flak from sections of supporters, it’ll come as a surprise a potential exit has already been mooted.

Rafa Benitez reunited with Rondon for a third time, having worked together at Newcastle and Dalian.

The Everton boss will know Venezeula’s all-time record goalscorer has been operating below his best because of the circumstances.

Rondon was ultimately brought in to be third-choice striker behind Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin.

The former is back fit while Calvert-Lewin is on the recovery from a quad issue, although no time frame on a potential return has been given.
