Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez has suggested to the Daily Mail that he wants to be at Molineux next season.

Jimenez is currently on loan at Wolves from Benfica, but Nuno’s side have already agreed a fee of £30 million, which they can pay to make the signing a permanent one.

Whether Wolves will be prepared to pay such a large fee for the Mexican international remains to be seen.

 

But Jimenez appears to be hoping that his loan move will be made long-term at the end of the season.

“I feel good here,” Jimenez said. ‘I’m fine, but that’s the decision of other people.

“I’m going to keep working and doing my job. I want people to think I am someone they want to have here.”
