West Ham United could miss out on signing Salomon Rondon this summer, with Rafa Benitez keen to reunite with the striker in China, as reported by The Sun.
The Mirror reported last week that the Hammers were set to return with another bid for the West Bromwich man, having had a £10m opening offer kicked into touch.

Benitez though is now set to launch a huge £25m bid for the player after making the switch from Newcastle to Dalian Yifang.
Rondon scored 11 goals and assisted seven times on loan at the Magpies in the Premier League last season, proving to be an effective top-flight talent.
With Marko Arnautovic leaving West Ham this summer, Manuel Pellegrini will need to bring in a player who provides a fresh attacking presence.

West Ham fans are disappointed with the news they could miss out on the Venezuelan international, taking to Twitter over the weekend to share their thoughts…
Why do we always take so long in signing players?? Rondon has a release clause, so pay it, not offering fringe players etc… he would have been class for us

No clue why we didn’t sign Rondon quickly, but that’s football!
Clubs could’ve come in at any point for him regardles.
Miss out on Rondon then IMO the budget needs changing as we’ll only have Hughill & Hernandez as ST’s & that’s unacceptable. 2 more quality ST’s will cost big!

Gutted Rather have Rondon than Gomez at least hes proven. They are so tight always trying to get players cheap I hate them 3

If we want a player and the club gives a minimum price of what we need to pay, being the release clauses for maxi and rondon, why do we not just pay it and save time and a whole lot of hassle. That way we would get what we want. Starting to get bored of all of this transfer news.

Can we just, you know, delete china from existence? I swear they are causing havoc with Arnautovic and now apparently stealing the rondon deal

Ex why the hell have we not just give WBA the 16 mil they’re asking for!? I really don’t understand it

Why does signing a striker and decent full backs always seem to be an issue with these owners?
