Wolverhampton Wanderers: Journalist makes claim on future of striker

Image for Wolverhampton Wanderers: Journalist makes claim on future of striker

Journalist Alex Crook has claimed that Raul Jimenez may need a move away from Wolves to rediscover form after his head injury.

Wolves striker Jimenez has found it difficult to revisit the form that he had before the horrific head injury that he sustained in November 2020 against Arsenal, which saw him out of action for the rest of the 2020/21 Premier League season.

Jimenez managed to return to action this season but has struggled, scoring just six times in 33 Premier League appearances for his side, compared to his 17 goals in the 2019/20 league season, and four goals in the opening 10 games last term.

With the drop in form for the Mexican forward, Crook highlighted to GiveMeSport that he may need a move elsewhere if he wants to try and get back to his goalscoring ways.

He said: “Raul Jimenez might [leave] as well. I think there’s a feeling there after coming back from that horror head injury, he needs a change of scenery and he’s someone they can get maybe £15-20 million for.”

Do you think Jimenez will leave Wolves?





TIF Thoughts on Crook’s comments…

Jimenez has struggled for form this season and this shows after looking at his Premier League stats for his side. He is ranked 19th in terms of average player rating (6.74), he has missed the most big chances in the side (8) and he has also been sent off twice, as per SofaScore.

Despite scoring an impressive 34 goals in 86 Premier League games before this season, it may be time for him to move on in an attempt to find form, as things just haven’t been the same for him since his injury.

With two years left on his contract, Wolves will be hoping that they can get a decent amount of money for his services if he was to leave in the summer so they can use the funds to invest in a new striker. And with rumours linking the likes of Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho with departures, it could be a summer of change at Molineux.
