Wolves have smashed their transfer record to sign Mexico international Raul Jimenez for a fee believed to be £32million. The striker, who joined Wolves on a season-long loan from Benfica last summer, has put pen-to-paper on a four-year deal at Molineux and the move will officially be completed on July 1.
Jimenez is the club’s top scorer with 15 goals in all competitions, having helped them to seventh in the Premier League, and he will be looking to add to his tally in Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final against Watford.
Speaking about the permanent move, the 27-year-old told the club’s official website: “I’m very happy for this permanent deal as I feel that being at Wolves suits me. I’ve enjoyed my time here. “I want to make history here at the club.
With my teamm=ates, I want to put the club back into the top places in the Premier League. I think we all want that and have that ambition.
” Wolves sporting director Kevin Thelwell also commented on the deal, saying: “The impact Raul has made during his short time at the club has been fantastic and we’re delighted that he’ll be part of the club’s long-term future. “From the second he walked through the door, he settled straight into the group.
“His goals in the Premier League and FA Cup have been vital to this season’s success and we’re looking forward to seeing him contribute even more during what will be an exciting end to the season in both competitions. “Raul’s permanent signing shows the ambition of this football club and the determination to make sure the future is an exciting one.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
