Wolves transfer news: Raul Jimenez linked with Bayern Munich

Wolves striker Raul Jimenez has been linked with a shock move to Bayern Munich.

El Futbolero reported yesterday that the Bavarian giants have started to look for potential replacements for Robert Lewandowski.

The Poland goal machine has been linked with a move to Barcelona. But Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn has rubbished those claims and said the 33-year-old will be with them next season (IBT).

Supposedly though, Bayern like Wanderers star Jimenez, who has enjoyed a fairly indifferent season in 2021/22.

The Mexico international suffered that horrendous skull fracture last season, which threatened his life.

Thankfully, Jimenez was able to recover from the incident for the start of the current campaign.

Has has had some brilliant moments, and some really strong performances.

But he has also had some games where he hasn’t quite been at it.

That is completely understandable given what happened.

El Futbolero talk about the possibility of a fresh start for Jimenez so he can truly rediscover his goalscoring touch.

It is stated in the report that Wolves would be willing to let him go for the right price.

It is also claimed that Bayern are readying a first offer of £21 million.

Kahn comments surely mean Bayern Munich won’t come calling for Wolves striker Jimenez… yet

Jimenez may not have returned as the same player as before his injury, but he is still a very important player for Wolves.

That said, if Bayern came in with a good offer then Wolves probably ought to consider it.

But given what Kahn has said, it seems very unlikely any approach will be made this summer at least.

There is a feeling with Jimenez that he could possibly stick around at Molineux until at leas the end of his current contract.

He is adored by the supporters and obviously, he loves playing for the club. And he is also extremely grateful for the support he received in the aftermath of his injury.

It would be no surprise if the £30 million signing didn’t have any interest at all in leaving, even if Bayern did come calling in later windows.
