Journalist Tim Spiers has been speaking on the latest episode of The Molineux View talking all things

Spiers was talking about Wolves’ recent struggles in front of goal, with only two goals between their two first-choice in and Fabio (via Transfermarkt).

On the topic, The Athletic’s Wolves correspondent provided an update on injured striker Jimenez.

He said: “hat I would say is that with Wolves only having pretty much one game in a month now, the amount of games that they’ve got left to play without Jimenez – and we don’t want to rely on him too much and we can’t expect too much of him – but we should say there’s not going to be many more games, I don’t think, without Raul Jimenez in the squad.

“All the signs are very good, and Wolves are talking very positively about his return.

“So fast-forward a month, and we may be talking about the return of Jimenez sooner rather than later.”

The Mexican striker has been absent from Nuno Espirito Santo’s side since sustaining a head injury against Arsenal in November which forced the striker to have surgery on his skull.

Jimenez had scored three times in his 10 appearances in the Premier League before sustaining the injury (via Transfermarkt).

Is Jimenez the key to a Wolves turnaround in form?

Yes

Yes

No

No

TIF Thoughts on Spiers’ comments on Jimenez…

Wolves fans will surely be encouraged to hear this news regarding their sidelined striker. Wolves have not looked the same threat in front of goal without him as they did earlier in the season when the Mexican was leading the line.

Having scored 47 in 110 appearances for Wolves – the best spell of his career – this news will no doubt be a big boost to the club if he were to return.

Willian Jose was brought in to the club during the transfer window, but the on-loan striker has failed to impress since he joined, having not scored in his eight appearances in the Premier League.
