Raul Jimenez told to stay put by Wolverhampton Wanderers
According to 90min (h/t Birmingham Mail), Tottenham Hotspur have been dealt a blow in their efforts to sign Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez.
Wolves have informed the Mexican that have no intention of selling him, along with two other players. The others being Adama Traore and Ruben Neves (h/t Birmingham Mail).
Jimenez has enjoyed a stellar season, contributing with 22 goals and 10 assists in 44 games. He particularly has a good record against us and has produced a return of three goals and two assists in four matches.
A clinical striker, Spurs fans will remember him scoring late on to clinch the tie at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, earlier this year.
With the coronavirus pandemic affecting club finances, Wolves’ stance on keeping their key players is understandable (h/t Birmingham Mail).
Jimenez would have made an impressive addition to Tottenham. The lack of depth upfront has hurt our side on many occasions this term. With Harry Kane’s future up in the air, signing Jimenez would have gone some way towards assuaging fears of profligacy in front of goal.
The Spanish dream!
In a further blow to our hopes, Jimenez has openly admitted that the two clubs he would love to join are Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.
The 28-year-old has done well to carve a reputation for himself after a disappointing spell in Spain with Atletico Madrid.
The 28-year-old has been one of the stars of Wolves’ rise in the Premier League. The club is currently knocking on the doors of Europe’s premier competition.
Jimenez is the club’s record signing, having initially joined on loan in 2018. He made the deal permanent after a spate of impressive showings in the Premier League. He went on to win the club’s Players’ Player of the Season in the 2018-19 season.
