“There’s a feeling” at Wolves that Raul Jimenez could leave the club this summer, according to talkSPORT reporter Alex Crook.
The £100,000-per-week ace has been a huge part of Wolves’ success since their promotion to the Premier League back in 2018, but the Mexican international has been linked with a move away from Molineux.
What’s the latest news involving Jimenez?
Despite starting more than 25 of Wolves’ Premier League games this season, talkSPORT believe that this could be the striker’s fourth and final year in the Midlands.
Jimenez has scored 54 goals across all competitions in the famous gold, but only six of those have come since he returned from a sickening head injury sustained at Arsenal back in November 2020.
Therefore, the report states that Wolves are weighing up the possibility of cashing in on Jimenez, who could benefit from moving on to pastures new following a challenging 18 months on and off the pitch.
What shirt number does Adama Traore wear for Wolves?
After scoring 15 goals in his debut season in English football, Jimenez made his loan move permanent after joining in a club record £30m.
But Crook reckons that with just two years remaining on the Mexican’s deal, Wolves might receive only half of that should they decide to sell.
What did Crook say about Jimenez?
He told GIVEMESPORT: “Raul Jimenez might [leave] as well. I think there’s a feeling there after coming back from that horror head injury, he needs a change of scenery and he’s someone they can get maybe £15-20 million for.”

Would Jimenez be a big loss for Wolves?
Jimenez was a fans’ favourite and an extremely popular figure with the Molineux faithful even before his serious injury, so he would therefore be a huge miss both on and off the pitch should Wolves decide to part ways.
But taking the injury out of the equation, as good as he’s been for the club, it hasn’t worked out for him this season, with his record in front of goal part of the reason why Wolves have scored the fewest (37) outside of the bottom three.
Jimenez still has undeniable quality, his stunning volley in the victory at Tottenham was evidence of that, but with Wolves in desperate need of freshening up their squad, this summer might be the perfect window to cash in on the frontman, especially with his stock still reasonably high.
