FourFourTwo have released an article about the rise of Raul Jimenez even though there were numerous red flags for Wolves before they signed him.

However, just over a year later and we have one of the most consistent Premier League strikers – who has scored 19 goals and registered ten assists in 51 Premier League appearances.

The article, though, focuses on the issues that have plagued the Mexican’s career, including his poor spell at Atletico Madrid and an equally bad move to Benfica – where the 28-year-old managed to score 31 goals in 120 appearances.

Last year marked the first season he had reached double figures for goals in Europe, and the initial loan move that we made for Jimenez, who earns around £41,000 per week, has turned into one of the better transfers in our history.

The article mentions that West Ham had agreed a loan fee a few years ago only for Jimenez not to turn up – surely a red flag, but Wolves, with the help of Jorge Mendes, brought Jimenez to the Black Country and he has not looked back.

Is Jimenez one of the best transfers we have completed?

Yes, he is fantastic

Yes, he is fantastic

No, we have had better deals

No, we have had better deals

This is because he has found the perfect role in Nuno’s team and has now become a striker that teams fear.

The Jimenez deal should not have worked, but the fact that it has proves that the Mendes relationship is finding the right players for our team.
