Spurs & Liverpool after Russia-based ace

Liverpool and Spurs are ready to battle it out for Zenit Saint-Petersburg striker Solomon Rondon this summer, according to The Express.

The Venezuela international has long been considered to be one of Russian football’s top forwards, but Andre Villas-Boas’ side are understood to have informed him that he will be allowed to leave at the end of the season as they chase Spartak Moscow’s Artyom Dzyuba.

Rondon is believed to have accepted the decision and is now actively looking for a new club.

This has led to fresh links with Liverpool and Spurs, who are both believed to have been interested in him in 2012 before he switched to Russian football.

Liverpool have been linked with a host of strikers in recent times amid the struggles of Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert following Luis Suarez’s exit.

Spurs are similarly in the market for an attacker, with Harry Kane’s rise from fringe player to main man at White Hart Lane indicative of the problems Mauricio Pochettino has.

Rondon has a proven goalscoring record, with the ex-Malaga man having notched 103 goals in 265 appearances.
