Salomon Rondon’s departure from Everton with immediate effect following a mutually agreed-upon contract termination has been confirmed by the club.

The Venezuelan forward only joined the Toffees in the summer of 2021, reuniting for the third time in his career with manager Rafael Benitez. However, in his debut season, he only managed three goals from 23 appearances across all competitions.

In Frank Lampard’s first season as manager, Salomon Rondon has been unnwanted for the duration of the current campaign, making just eight appearances before the World Cup break and going scoreless.

According to a statement on the official Everton website: “Salomon Rondon has left Everton with immediate effect after reaching an agreement with the Club to terminate his contract.

“The Venezuela striker joined the Blues from Chinese team Dalian Professional in August 2021 and made 31 appearances for Everton, starting 13 matches and scoring three goals.

“The 33-year-old’s deal was initially due to end at the end of June 2023.

“Everyone at Everton wishes Salomon all the best for the future.”

Due to Rondon’s departure, Everton’s offensive is becoming less and less reliant on strikers. Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who has suffered mightily to maintain his fitness, was filled in by the Venezuelan. The only other pure striker in the first squad, Neal Maupay, joined from Brighton this summer.

However, Maupay has only registered one goal since joining Everton, and his failures serve as a microcosm of the team’s offensive problems. Only one team in the Premier League this season has scored fewer goals than Lampard’s team.
