Wolves transfer news: Real Mallorca interested in Raul Jimenez

Wolves will listen to offers for Raul Jimenez this summer – and Real Mallorca are apparently keen on him.

According to the Daily Mail, Wanderers are bracing themselves over the Mexico international, who had a tough season in 2021/22.

That was perhaps always going to be the case, with the player suffering the horrendous head injury he did last season.

Jimenez finished the campaign with just six goals to his name.

The Mail say the club are not actively looking to sell. However, they will hear offers, and are prepared to offload for the right price.

The publication add that Real Mallorca could make a move since they are managed by Mexico coach Javier Aguirre.

There is also interest from clubs the US and Mexico. 

Jimenez making a move to Real Mallorca would see him return to La Liga, having played in the division before with Atletico Madrid in the 2014/15 season.

Raul Jimenez leaving Wolves would be a surprise, as Real Mallorca show interest

It would be a big surprise if Jimenez left Molineux this summer.

He may not have scored that many goals in 2021/22, but he still had some very good performances where he showed great link-up play. And, of course, he did have some poor ones too.

But he’s still a great footballing centre-forward, and it would be a real risk to offload him, even if he isn’t quite the same player as before.

Indeed, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said recently that Jimenez was ‘always dangerous’.

The club should only sell if they know they can sign a top-quality replacement with a brilliant goalscoring record and effective link-up play.
