Venezuela international currently plays for Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang, he made a move to Asia after a successful loan spell with Newcastle United last campaign.
Salomon’s move came after Rafa Benitez left the Magpies to manage Dalian, the centre-forward was keen on reuniting with the Spanish boss. Rondon arrived in the Premier League in the summer of 2015 when he joined West Bromwich Albion, the target-man scored 24 goals for the Baggies in 108 top-flight games.
Following the Midlands outfit’s relegation, the 30-year-old striker joined Newcastle on loan and enjoyed his best top-flight season to date. The Venezuelan centre-forward managed to score 11 times, while also chipping in with seven assists.
It looks as though more competition is needed for London club’s main man Tammy Abraham and his hardworking character, combined with his Premier League experience, could have made him a brilliant short-term option. Frank Lampard preferred to give a chance Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud.
Chelsea have excellent consequences in the Premier League this campaign as they are in a fourth place in the table. London club signed Mateo Kovacic from Real Madrid and Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund during the summer transfer window.
