SALOMON RONDON’S future at Everton is in doubt and he may be shipped out in the transfer window.
The experienced striker, 33, missed the defeat at Bournemouth that left the club on a low going into the World Cup break because of a toe problem.

Now the Venezuelan may train with the younger players as boss Frank Lampard plans ahead without him.
And Sheffield Wednesday have joined Fleetwood in the hunt for the Toffees’ young striker Tom Cannon on loan.
Everton return to Premier League action on December 26 against Wolves, sitting one point above the drop zone.
And while Rondon faces a Goodison Park exit, Alex Iwobi looks set to sign a new £100,000-a-week deal, as revealed by SunSport.
The Nigerian midfielder, 26, is now a key player under Frank Lampard and ready to pen a fresh three-and-a-half-year agreement.
Iwobi has just 18 months of his current £70,000-a-week contract left and the new one will take him to 2026.
A £38million signing from Arsenal in 2019, Iwobi was proving to be a flop at Goodison Park but he has completely turned around his fortunes.
Despite only scoring once this season, he has delivered a string of top performances and is one of the first names on Lampard’s team sheet.

A new deal for Iwobi is a lift for the Toffees, who were hit by injuries before the winter World Cup.
Midfielder James Garner was ruled out for two months with a back problem.
The 21-year-old stayed behind when the club travelled to Australia for the Sydney Super Cup last month.
