Rafa Benitez’s new side Dalian Yifang have agreed a deal with West Brom to sign Salomon Rondon, Sky Sports News understands.
The Chinese Super League club are now in discussions with the Venezuela striker and a deal could be agreed with him by Wednesday.
Rondon is said to be keen on working with Benitez again, having played under him on loan at Newcastle last season.
The 29-year-old’s contract at West Brom has a release clause of £16.5m.
Benitez became Dalian manager in early July after deciding not to sign a new contract at St James’ Park.
