Wolves star Raul Jimenez urged to complete Man Utd or Liverpool transfer
Wolves star Raul Jimenez has been urged to think seriously about his future and complete a move to either Manchester United or Liverpool this summer by Mexican football expert Sergio Dipp.
United are in the market for a new striker to challenge Anthony Martial for a starting spot.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer feels he needs a world-class goalscorer to lead the line and he will begin his search once talks with Jadon Sancho are concluded.
Meanwhile, Liverpool could lose Divock Origi and will have no senior back-up for Roberto Firmino.
With Wolves missing out on European football next season, Nuno Espirito Santo may find it difficult to persuade his key men to remain at Molineux.
And Jimenez has been advised to move on for the good of his career.
“Leave Wolverhampton now,” Dipp wrote for ESPN. “The best thing Raul Jimenez can do is change of scene.
“The English League has been very good for him, but the team has been too small for him.”
Jimenez scored 27 goals across all competitions this season as Wolves finished seventh in the Premier League table.
They also have a strong run in the Europa League, exiting at the quarter-final stage against European experts Sevilla.
“He should have a thirst for revenge and a desire to demonstrate at the highest level, because in May he will turn 30 and naturally the window will be closing,” Dipp added.
“So he has to take advantage of the fact that he is coming off the best season of his career.”
Jimenez missed an early penalty during the 1-0 defeat against Sevilla but Santo refused to blame his top scorer for the defeat.
“Of course we don’t blame Raul,” he said.
“He’s an amazing player and when you look at all the things he has done for us – the work, the goals and all his talent. He’s just a fantastic player.
“Everybody is disappointed but we shouldn’t ignore everything that we have done over the last 14 months of this competition.”
