Stephen Warnock has suggested that Nuno Espirito Santo could still move for Wolves striker Raul Jimenez.

The former Premier League full-back appeared on Sky Sports News earlier today to talk about Tottenham Hotspur.

At the moment of course, there is a situation at Spurs with Harry Kane wanting to leave the club.

He hasn’t yet returned to the club, and it remains to be seen if he’ll be involved in the first game against the team he’s been heavily linked with, Manchester City, on Sunday.

Nuno has said he’ll be available, but it doesn’t mean he’ll play.

Kane could well end up leaving, and Warnock was speaking about Wolves star Jimenez as a possible replacement.

He said (09/08/21 at 12:10 pm): “He brings such quality. This is my concern with him this year. We know he has had such a bad head injury and we are wondering how competitive he is going to be.

“Is it in his mind? The mentality and what he is thinking – this is one of his greatest skills as well. It’s not just about crosses into the box. It’s about him taking players on. He’s got such great feet to draw players in. He creates as well.

“If he didn’t have his head injury, and Nuno goes to Spurs, then you wonder if he takes Jimenez with him? It could still happen.”

 

It could not still happen

There is no chance Raul Jimenez leaves the football club at this stage. Not for Spurs and Nuno, not for anyone.

Jimenez has worked tremendously hard to get back to where he is now.

Not only that, he’s had people from the club helping him every step of the way. And it’s likely he feels intense gratitude and indebtedness.

He wouldn’t want to go, nor are Wolves about to start listening to offers for their talisman. Not that they would be forthcoming given the situation.

There’s absolutely no chance in this window.

Were he to get back to the levels he showed before his injury, and Kane had left Spurs, perhaps then something could happen in a future window.

Even then though a move may not happen, given how utterly adored Jimenez is at Molineux at this point.
