Wolverhampton Wanderers fans are reacting to reports linking them with a move for Benfica striker Raul Jimenez.

According to O Jogo, Wolves are close to signing Jimenez on a season-long loan deal, which will cost them €5 million (around £4.4 million) plus €1 million (around £900,000) in wages.

The 27-year-old, who is due to take part in this summer's World Cup for Mexico, only scored seven goals and set up six in 43 games for Benfica last season.

However, all but 10 of those appearances arrived from the bench, and the super-sub role is one he may also have to adopt Wolves, who are being tipped to make a marquee type signing such as that of AC Milan striker Andre Silva.

Nevertheless, many of the Wolves faithful appear to be excited by their side's links to the former Atletico Madrid and Club America man.

This is what they're saying...
