The confirmation of Salomon Rondon’s loan signing means that Rafa Benitez will now have two new forward options heading into the new season.

Following on from the £9.5m signing of Yoshinori Muto from Mainz, we will likely see a new look front line on the opening day against Tottenham.

Fans on Twitter have been debating whether the duo can help improve our threat in front of goal, and it seems some are doubtful that goals will begin to flow more freely:

Some are hoping the pair strike up a good partnership:

Rondon averaged one goal in every four games for West Brom, while Muto averaged one in three for Mainz, which suggests that they won’t be prolific forwards for us.

However, I do think they are an improvement on Dwight Gayle and Joselu. The pair scored just ten between them for the club last season, and there is no doubt that we needed players to come in and improve on that meagre return.
