In the summer, it’s hardly news that Juventus are on the lookout for a new forward. The aim is to bring in a physically aggressive, hard working forward with an eye for goal. Few of these exist, and many of the players in that bracket already play for top clubs. One player being heavily linked, though, is Raul Jimenez. The former Benfica and Atletico Madrid man has been a star billing for Wolves, and has rebuilt his game following poor performances when playing in Madrid.
However, despite scoring an impressive 24 goals in 47 games this year, the Wolves man remains committed to the cause. According to teammate Jota, he’s happy at Molineux and has no plans of moving on. Speaking to Sky Sports News, Jota said of his teammate: “After the season is finished I think everyone can think about their own careers, but until then we’ll go as a team thinking to do our best in each game.
“I think he’s an unbelievable player. We signed him when we came to the Premier League and, [although] not from the beginning, I started to create a good relationship with him, not just on the pitch but off the pitch as well and that’s helped me, him and the team.
“To have a player like Raul who is a finisher and decides matches is really important to us and he’s in a good moment now.”
For now, then, it would appear that an exit to Italy is not likely to take place. If Wolves manage to land a UEFA Champions League spot, the opportunity for moving becomes even more remote.
