Lots of Wolves fans have responded on Twitter to words from Peter Crouch about Raul Jimenez.
While on BT Sport during Wolves’ 2-1 loss to Liverpool last night, the former England international claimed that he was ‘surprised’ that no ‘big, big’ move had been presented to him yet considering the form that he has been in.
The Mexican forward impressed once more again last night as he bagged against the European champions with a fantastic header.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to get anything against the table-toppers, however, he did himself some favours amongst the press as the studio waxed lyrical about him after the match.
Thankfully for Wolves, their striker situation means that even if they were offered £100m tomorrow they probably couldn’t even sell him. The departure of Patrick Cutrone has made them very short in that position and they continue to hunt a backup to the former Atletico forward.
Fans didn’t appreciate Crouch’s comments all too much, with many suggesting that he is already at a ‘big, big’ club, and others doubting the legitimacy of the top six with many of the bigger teams falling apart this season.
Here are some of the responses below…
Already at a big club with ambition and up and coming

Any club could of come in for Jiménez or Traoré, but they didn’t. They’re both thriving because of excellent coaching

He’s at a ‘BIG BIG’ club

Jimenez’s 20 goals so far this season is likely to have many of Europe’s biggest clubs standing up and noticing.
While it’s unlikely to see him leave this campaign, the summer could see the big sharks circling Molineux if he continues this great form.
