Tottenham might be interested in signing West Bromwich Albion striker Salomon Rondon if the Baggies are relegated to the Championship, according to the Mail.

West Brom are currently ten points adrift of safety and look almost certain to be playing in the second tier of English football next season.

If that happens, Rondon will be able to leave for £16.5 million because of a release clause included in the contract he signed upon joining West Brom in 2015.

The 28-year-old will have just one year left on that deal come the end of the season, so his suitors may try to get him for even cheaper.

The Mail believes West Ham United are chief among the clubs interested in signing Rondon, but they could face competition from their London rivals Spurs and Chelsea.

Tottenham are expected to make Fernando Llorente available for transfer this summer, and Vincent Janssen has been linked with another loan move to Fenerbahce.

That means Spurs could be in need of a new back-up striker this summer, although Heung-Min Son did well in that role during Harry Kane’s recent absence through injury.

Rondon has scored 27 goals in 114 appearances for West Brom. Those numbers aren’t massively impressive, but he would arguably be an upgrade on Llorente and Janssen.
