Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez is working hard to seal his return to football.

The Mexico international has been unable to play for the club since suffering his awful skull fracture against Arsenal back in November, but his recovery has been going well.

It is a question of when Jimenez comes back now, not if, as was feared by many when he was in hospital.

Nuno Espirito Santo hopes to be able to call on the former Benfica man before the 2020/21 season is out, and his return is something that cannot come soon enough for Wolves supporters.

Ideally it would be soon, with Wolves now looking to potentially push for a Europa League finish after getting back on track.

But there is still no word on a specific return date.

Today, the club did release some more images of Jimenez at Compton Park with one showing him controlling a football with his chest.

The post went down a treat with fans, and there was also a message of support from Willian Jose – the man signed to provide attacking support in Jimenez’s absence – who wrote ‘Happy for your recovery! Step by step!’

Jose is still searching for his first Wolves goal since joining in January on loan from Real Sociedad.

He’ll be hoping to break his duck against Newcastle United on Saturday, and prove himself as the suitable Jimenez cover Wolves believe he is.
