I agree with those comments. No chance of this signing happening

Why not ?  Assuming Saido stays, then maybe taking Gnarby on loan is instead of paying £9m/£10m for Phillips, freeing up best part of £10m.  If Saido leaves then we can still go in for Phillips, with Rondon already there to replace Saido.

It would be great, but I can't honestly see us having Saido, Rondon and Lambert.  Gut feeling is that landing Rondon is the pre-cursor to us agreeing to let Saido leave, knowing that we already have his replacement signed.  We then have the Saido money to buy Phillips plus one or two others.  To me that seems more likely.

Found this article from the Daily Mail 2 years ago ...

West Brom enquire about Rondon
More potential business at the Hawthorns. Neil Moxley reports:
West Bromwich Albion have spoken with Portuguese side CD Nacional about Venezuela striker Mario Rondon, 27.
Albion have been rebuffed in various enquiries as they search for forwards intensifies and also failed in a bid to lure Colombian Adrian Ramos from Hertha Berlin as the German side demanded £8million.

Different player, this one (Mario) is currently 29 and plays for some team called Shijiazhuang Ever Bright in China.

Out of interest, has Pulis ever signed anyone who hasn't played in England before ...?

Brek Shea and Geoff Cameron are the only think of. As a rule Pulis does look for more established Premier League or English league players.

He was clearly prepared to buy Gignac if he hadn't gone off to Mexico instead. I'm guessing there's a certain level of quality that
leads to him branching out further than usual.

I posted a Russian link earlier :

http://sports-info.ru/rondon-blizok-k-perehodu-v-vest-bromvich/

Think they use the Italian one as source though.

Apologies you already put this up
translation of the russian article follows,

It is worth noting that earlier media reported that 25 -year-old Venezuelan is in the interests of " Everton ", " Aston Villa ", " Newcastle ", " Bolton " and " West Ham " . However , " Blackbirds " - the most likely candidate for a striker.

Recall that Rondon was the " victim " of the new limits on foreign players ( 6 + 5), in the Premier League . The first games of the championship of Russia on football he spent on the bench.
Lovin the championship, just lovin it !

I know nothing about him, but his record is insanely good - I do worry this will mean Berahino is off though? Spurs still haven't signed a striker and it'd make sense we get a replacement in first.

Surely Berahino on his way then. Lambert didn't come here to sit on the bench and this guy will surely be a starter.

To be fair we were linked with Austin earlier in the window, and to my knowledge that wasn't to replace berahino, interesting that we will spend 15m on rondon and not Austin.... How would rondon compare as I know nothing about him?

Albion poised to sign Salomon Rondon for record £15m
West Brom are poised to smash their transfer record to land Venezuela international striker Salomon Rondon from Zenit St Petersburg for around £15m.
   
The Baggies were today looking to tie up the loose ends of a big-money deal to bring the 25-year-old from Russia.

News of a likely deal for Rondon emerged as Hawthorns officials were completing the formalities of Serge Gnabry’s season-long loan from Arsenal.

Rondon, who has 39 caps for his country, joined Zenit from Rubin Kazan last summer for a fee of around £16m and went on to hit 20 goals in 37 league games for the Russian club last season.

He will join fellow new signing Rickie Lambert, England Under-21s hitman Saido Berahino, Victor Anichebe and Brown Ideye in the battle for forward places.

Rondon moved to Europe seven years ago and played in Spain for Las Palmas and Malaga.

He scored 13 times in 36 league games during two years with Rubin before moving to St Petersburg last summer.

His arrival could pave the way for either Anichebe or Ideye to leave if the Baggies can find a buyer.

Meanwhile, Gnabry will join the Baggies for the rest of the season in a deal that was confirmed by Gunners boss Arsene Wenger this morning but the 20-year-old will not be available for Monday’s season opener at home to Manchester City.

The deadline for new players to figure in the opening weekend has passed, and the player is also short of match fitness.

Pulis has also added winger James McClean and defender James Chester to his squad this summer.
