Wolves fans exploded with delight after news broke that striker Raul Jimenez has signed a new contract with the club.
Jimenez has been an absolute delight for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side since his £30m move from Benfica last summer, having initially joined the club on a season-long loan. He has gone on to score 46 goals and provided 18 assists from 103 appearances, as per TransferMarkt.
Last season, he was described as “world-class” by the Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, who stated that Jimenez is good enough to play for Pep Guardiola’s side, cited by talkSPORT.
Can Wolves qualify for the Europa League this season?
Understandably, the news attracted huge elation from the Molineux faithful, regarding a player that is an essential piece to Nuno’s puzzle.
Some of the responses were a tad on the emotional side, as you can see below…
As well as being a great striker he’s one of the most humble, appreciative and hard working players I’ve seen at wolves for a while, a dream for wolves fans really
