Raul Jimenez Gives Manchester United and Arsenal Transfer Insight
Manchester United and Arsenal have shown interest in Jiménez this season. Both teams are looking for strikers and may fight over his signature in the summer.
Manchester United’s Raúl Jiménez Interest
United could face losing a striker this summer, Anthony Martial. Inter Milan reportedly want him, with Barcelona considering a move for their in-form goal-scorer Lautaro Martinez.
They are looking for a centre-forward in the summer, and with potentially on his way out, Jiménez has emerged as an option. Although Martial has displayed quality, he is not a clinical striker, and United may try to bring in Wolverhampton Wanderers’ star scorer regardless of his departure.
With his consistent direct goal involvements – 32 in all competitions this season – the Mexican would make for a great signing. However, it may be difficult to prize him away from a very successful Wolves side.
Arsenal Also Want Jiménez
Similar to United, Arsenal face losing a striker in the summer, and are looking into the Wolves man as a replacement.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been fantastic for the Gunners this season with 17 goals, making him the top scorer in the Premier League. This has attracted interest from all over Europe.
Barcelona have been very keen to sign the Gabon international, and the Red Devils are also admirers of his. Jiménez would make a great replacement for someone who has been the shining light of a dismal campaign for the North London side.
Jiménez reportedly has no interest in leaving Molineux, despite the big-money offers. He said that he is happy at Wolves, he has a contract until 2023, and that the up-and-coming nature of the Wanderers’ rise into the Premier League is exciting, with them now challenging for Champions League football in a very tight race.
