West Ham United have reportedly had a £10 million plus two players offer to West Brom for striker Salomon Rondon rejected, according to a report published by The Daily Star.

The two Hammers players offered to the Baggies are believed to be Sam Byram and Jordan Hugill, added the report.

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini is reportedly eager to reunite with the striker whom he previously worked with at Malaga of Spain.

The Chilean boss is looking to recruit a few new strikers this summer given that Andy Carroll and Lucas Perez have left the club, while Javier Hernandez is also expected to be leaving this summer.

Rondon spent the past season on loan with Newcastle United and impressed as he went on to score 12 goals from 33 top-flight appearances.

The 29-year-old may not be the most naturally gifted player or a prolific goalscorer but he is credited as being one of the hardest working players in the Premier League and could be of benefit to the Hammers.

Rondon, who is currently on international duty with Venezuela in the Copa America, is also not injury prone. The Hammers have suffered the misfortune of having had injury prone players within their squad during recent seasons.

While the South American may not be the big-name addition that West Ham’s supporters crave, he would be an upgrade on some of the club’s recent options in attack.
