Raul Jimenez is the striker Wolves need, says Express & Star journalist Hatfield.

After a horrific head injury that kept him out for the majority of last season, Jimenez has returned to action and is slowly returning to form again.

The 30-year-old striker scored the winner in a recent 1-0 win versus Southampton before providing a couple of assists against Newcastle United last time out.

Will Wolves qualify for Europe?

Yes

It has helped propel Wolves up the table after a slow start to the season, with Bruno Lage’s men now sitting in 12th.

Speaking to TIF about the Mexico international, Hatfield said:

“He’s exactly the striker Wolves need. They need someone who’s able to hold the ball up, create chances for others and score goals themselves.

“He really is the all-round player, got the entire package and it’s just good to see him back scoring goals.”

From Wolves’ perspective, hopefully Jimenez can keep it up. The Midlands will be keen to make a return to Europe after finishing 13th last season and the former man could help them to at least make a push if he can rediscover the form he showed in previous campaigns.

Back in the 2019/20 Premier season, Jimenez scored an impressive 17 goals in 38 games and was arguably one of the best forwards in the division that term.
