Rondon aiming for Europa League

Salomon Rondon is adamant West Brom can still qualify for Europe this season, claiming it is within their reach.

Albion are currently in 11th position in the Premier League following their 1-0 loss to Norwich City on Saturday, but Rondon believes the 11-point gap to fifth-placed West Ham isn't as far as it seems.

"The distance that separates us from Europa League suggests that it is not crazy to qualify, but we must be aware of the teams we face," the Venezuelan forward told Spanish paper Diario.

"We focus on the game at a time because the Premier League forces you to do that.

"We look up and see a tangible goal as the Europa League. If we are close, why not dream of entering?"

Rondon has enjoyed his debut campaign under Tony Pulis, scoring eight goals in 30 games since making a club-record transfer of £12 million from Zenit St Petersburg.
