Wolves Set To Complete Signing Of Raul Jimenez For A Club Record £25 Million
Wolves are 'on the brink' of signing Raul Jimenez for £25 million in a club record transfer.
The Mexican striker was snapped up on loan from Benfica during the summer transfer window, and he's been nothing short of a revelation in his debut season in the Premier League.
The prolific No.9 has arguably been Wolves' best performer this campaign.
Raul's bagged an impressive 15 goals in all competitions including 12 strikes in the league, not to mention six assists.
The 27-year-old has made a name for himself as a big game player, with seven goal involvements (four goals and three assists) versus teams in the top six.
He's starred for Wolves as they enjoy a superb term. They sit seventh in the league and have a FA Cup semi-final against Watford to look forward to.
Manager Nuno Espirito Santo has made Raul's signing a priority following his heroics.
The Midlands club are now expected to secure his luxurious services on a permanent basis.
They're in advanced negotiations with Benfica and a deal is set to completed before the end of the season.
According to fresh reports from Telegraph, Wolves will shell out an initial £25 million, which could rise to £30 million based on add-ons.
