Jimenez has scored 22 goals and provided a further 10 assists in 43 appearances in all competitions for Wolverhampton Wanderers this season (via Transfermarkt). His goal contributions have been important for Wolves’ chase to finish in the Champions League spots in the Premier League and battle in the Europa League.
Spurs, on the other hand, currently sit eighth in the league and have been knocked out of the Champions League, so their route back into the competition is arguably tougher than Wolves’ at the moment. Jimenez could prove to be a ‘perfect fit’ for next season if Spurs want to get back to where they want to be. Indeed, the injury to Harry Kane did show how much Spurs miss having another centre-forward and, having won almost as many aerial duels per game as the Englishman (2.8 to 2.2, via WhoScored), perhaps he could be a good option for that role as both cover and competition.
These Spurs fans have expressed their interest in the Mexican international, with one fan saying ‘a hundred times yes’ in response to the speculation and another calling the striker ‘a top player’:
Tottenham are interested in making a summer move for Wolves forward, Raul Jimenez.

We can’t remain completely reliant on one striker! He’s a top player and I’d like to see this happen
