The publication say a source close to manager Tata Martino has informed them that Jimenez’s situation is ‘very complicated’.

Apparently, he cannot walk without showing signs of discomfort.

Jimenez was never going to be playing for Mexico during this international break. He was simply going to continue his recovery.

But it looks as though the star’s problem is worse than was first reported.

It was claimed ahead of the international break that Jimenez was expected to be back for the Chelsea game on October 8.

But judging by the tone of the reports we have had over the past few days, that now seems doubtful.

Medio Tiempo suggest there is potential for Jimenez World Cup place to be in doubt.

They finish their article with some information on Pubalgia, and state that surgery is a possible solution if pain continues to manifest.

So far in 2022/23, Jimenez has made just four appearances for Wolves.

He came into the season with a knee and adductor injury. And it seems the latter is still giving him trouble.

More worrying claims about Raul Jimenez’s mysterious injury

There have now been quite a few claims regarding Jimenez’s condition, which is definitely worrying.

It does suggest that he might be struggling more than Wolves initially let on.

If he is out for weeks then that will be a big blow.

Yes, he has struggled for form when he has played. But he’s still a number nine and probably the most likely to player to actually stick the ball in the net for Wolves.

It potentially puts big pressure on the newest addition at Molineux Diego Costa, who has been building his fitness since arriving a couple of weeks ago.
