Wolves will be offered the chance to sign Mexican forward Raúl Jiménez on a permanent basis in the summer.
That is according to The Mirror who report that Jiménez’s parent club are prepared to sanction the summer sale of Jiménez at a cost of £30 million.
The Mexican international joined the Midlands outfit on a year-long loan at the start of the season, but has adapted seamlessly to life in the Premier League, scoring 9 goals and providing 5 assists in 26 appearances. He has also chipped in with 2 FA Cup goals to help his side through to a 5th-round tie against Championship side Bristol City this weekend.
Jiménez began his career in his native Mexico with América before securing a move to Europe with Atlético Madrid. Despite signing a 6-year deal with Atlético, however, things did not go well during his time in Spain and, after scoring just one goal for them, he was soon shipped out to Benfica where he impressed, and earned the loan move to Wolves.
