Wolves are reportedly open to cashing in on striker Raul Jimenez this summer. And the club could accept as little as £15 million.
According to talkSPORT journalist Alex Crook, Wanderers are ready to invite interest in the Mexico international.
2021/22 has been a tricky campaign for Jimenez.
The 30-year-old has struggled to show his best form on a consistent basis, and that was always likely going to be the case.
Last season of course, Jimenez suffered that horrific skull fracture.
The incident almost cost him his lift, and it is something of a miracle he was able to resume his professional career.
Sadly, Jimenez has not been able to return to the level he was showing prior to his injury.
While he’s found it tough, Bruno Lage has still picked him for most games. And the manager recently heaped praise on his number nine.
He said: “I see him as a main player. The way he has played for us all season is amazing.
“The way he runs and fights for the team, that’s why he’s an important player.”
And now, Crook claims Wolves could actually listen to offers for the player.
Apparently, Wanderers would be willing to accept somewhere in the region of £15 million. Crook also says in his report that Jimenez would be willing to return to Spain. He previously played for Atletico Madrid.
Should Jimenez end up departing for such an amount, it would mean Wolves taking a £15 million hit on him, after he signed for a £30 million fee (BBC Sport).
Wolves should only sell Raul Jimenez if they can seal a quality replacement
There is no doubt that it’s been a tough season for Jimenez.
It would be a huge shame if he was to be sold, given the brilliant memories he has provided supporters with during his time at the club.
Johnny Phillips recently reported that Wolves could potentially change their whole spine this summer.
It really would be a big deal if Jimenez was to leave.
Really, the club should only look to take that gamble if they can secure a quality replacement.
