Wolves striker Raul Jimenez has been in brilliant form for the club ever since his arrival back in 2019.
The Mexico international has made a total of 108 appearances for the club and he has a truly superb record in front of goal.
He has scored 48 goals and registered 18 assists in 108 games, meaning he has a ratio of a goal involvement, be it a strike or an assist, every 0.6 games.
That’s a thoroughly decent record for a player plying his trade for a club who are, really, a mid-table Premier League side.
But he could well have found his way to a new club in the summer.
He has spoken to TUDN, and the interview has been transcribed by Sport Witness.
In the interview, Jimenez has commented on rumours of a move to either Juventus or Manchester United in the summer, and he says there was plenty of interest in his services.
He said: “During vacations or a transfer window a new team will come out every day, what I knew was about the news, rumours.
“One day I’d wake up and Juventus loved me, another it’d be Manchester United, and what I know is that there were approaches, but an agreement was never reached, nothing close, but I’m very good at Wolves.”
Jimenez also maintains that he had no qualms about staying at Wolves, as he looks to help the club reach the next level.
He added: “Well, not really, I’m very happy at Wolverhampton, it’s never forced because I’m in a place where I’m fine, they know I’m not satisfied, I’m always looking for more.
“It didn’t happen this time, if it happens at some point will have to want the best for me, Wolves and the team who came, but I’m very happy at Wolves being very important.”
Jimenez has scored four Premier League goals already this season, with Wolves currently ninth in the Premier League.
GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…
This will be music to the ears of Wolves fans.
Jimenez is a truly excellent striker and he is clearly feeling settled at the club.
He could well have pushed for a move, especially with it being two European heavyweights looking to bring him in, but he seems more than happy with his lot.
Wolves made him their club-record signing when he came in and he has a contract until 2024.
It seems he may well see that out.News Now - Sport News
