The Lowdown: UAE offer
The Venezuelan reportedly had an offer from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to join Sharjah FC in their domestic transfer window.
A move never materialised in the end, and he has been deemed ‘surplus to requirements’ at the Merseyside club.
The Latest: Supporters would be ‘pleased’
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Brown has claimed that Everton supporters would be ‘pleased’ if Rondon were to leave, adding that he is not ‘fit for purpose’ for the Premier League.
The journalist said: “I think Everton fans would be only too pleased to see the back of him because he’s just not a reliable goalscorer anymore.
“Unfortunately, he is not fit for purpose in the Premier League. I think those days are gone, so it would make sense for all parties to say goodbye.”
The Verdict: Sell in January
With Rondon’s contract up in the summer, Frank Lampard’s side need to try and get as much money for the Venezuelan as they can in the January transfer window and move him on.
The striker has just three goals and one assist in 29 matches over the course of his Everton career (Transfermarkt), leaving former top-flight forward Gabby Agbonlahor to deem him as ‘not good enough‘ for the Premier League.
Lampard has Neal Maupay as well as Dominic Calvert-Lewin in his ranks now, and even if the Toffees cannot get a transfer fee for the 33-year-old, they would still shave more than £20,000 per week off their wage bill by letting him go.
If another opportunity arises to finally get rid of Rondon, Everton should do so at all costs.
