Now Rodrigo has told his La Liga side he would again like to play in England’s top flight.

He is waiting to find out the price Valencia want but it is expected to be in the £30million range.

And that will bring him on to the shopping list of many clubs.

Rodrigo, 28, scored 15 goals last season and helped Valencia win the Spanish Cup last season.

He bagged against Barcelona in the final to seal a 2-1 victory over the La Liga champions.

The striker played for Real Madrid’s C and B teams before moving to Benfica and then his current outfit four years ago.

Everton have enquired about Rodrigo in the past and are again in the market for a “glamour” signing.


 

Marco Silva could observe first-hand the Spain international when he scored a double against the Toffees in a pre-season friendly at Goodison Park last summer.

West Ham are also aware of the striker, who scored against England in Nations League action last season.

Valencia will ask for about £70m to begin with but are likely to come down to a more sensible fee.
