According to TuttoJuve, Wolverhampton Wanderers have lowered their asking price for Raul Jimenez. Juventus are keen on the 29-year-old and reports in May suggested Wolves were open to selling him, so a move away from Molineux may be on the cards.
TuttoJuve say the Midlands outfit ‘have a quote of €20m’ for Juventus, 50% of the figure Jimenez was touting for himself in an April interview. He said at the time: “(Wolves) bought me for €40million (£34.5m), they won’t sell me for less.”
The Mexican international has attracted interest from other clubs since his move from Benfica. Jimenez initially joined Wolves on loan in 2018, scoring 17 goals and making eight assists in 44 games. He turned his move permanent in 2019, scoring 22 goals and making 10 assists in 44 games.
In addition to Juventus, Manchester United are also keen on the striker’s signature, but Wolves surely won’t part company with a key player without lining up a replacement.
Carlo Vinicius is on their radar, but his €100m asking price may kill any hopes of Wolves agreeing a deal with Benfica. It’s unknown whether the Midlands outfit will have more luck trying to bring in Danny Loader, Hee-Chan Hwang or Emmanuel Dennis either.
