Liverpool To Compete With Dortmund For Forward

Barclays Premier League side Liverpool will face competition in the race for the signature of Rubin Kazan striker Salomon Rondon, according to the Daily Express.

Bundesliga side Dortmund are said to be interested in the Venezuelan, and will contest Liverpool for his services.

Liverpool are preparing themselves for the possible departure of Uruguayan forward Luis Suarez, and are looking to Rondon to replace their top goal scorer, reports the paper.

The Venezuelan has played 31 times for his national side scoring 11 goals, and has played 4 times in all competitions for Rubin Kazan this season.

Rondon is not the only striker to be linked with replacing Suarez, as the Daily Express suggest that manager Brendon Rodgers is also looking at Luis Muriel to boost Liverpool’s strike force.

Liverpool faces competition on their hands with Dortmund if they decide to pursue Rondon.

The German side is also in the market for a striker as Polish forward Robert Lewandowski is linked with a move away, writes the paper.

According to the Daily Express, Dortmund have enquired about Rondon to Rubin Kazan about the striker’s valuation, and the Russian side are expecting to get the £8.7 million back for the forward.
