The list of strikers linked with Barcelona this summer continues to grow, with West Bromwich Albion's Salomón Rondón the latest rumoured to be on the Spanish champions' radar.

Barcelona after 'MSN' understudy

Valencia's Paco Alcácer currently appears to be Barça's priority target as they continue their search for back-up to their forward trio of Leo Messi, Luis Suárez and Neymar.

But reports in the UK say they are also monitoring Venezuelan Rondón, West Brom's match-winner in their opening-day Premier League victory over Crystal Palace at the weekend.

Rondón has 53 caps for Venezuela.

Familiar with Spanish football

Rondón, who scored 10 goals for the Baggies last season after joining from Zenit St Petersburg, has plenty of experience of Spain following stints at Las Palmas and Málaga.
