Wolves striker Raul Jimenez wants to take his career to the next level by working under Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool, according to reports.

Jimenez, who began his career in his native Mexico, has become one of the Premier League’s top strikers since his loan move from Benfica in the summer of 2018.

Indeed, after scoring 12 top-flight goals and assisting eight others up until the start of April, Wolves made his move permanent and he has kicked on since, scoring 22 and assisting 10 this term.

As such, reports have indicated that Manchester United and Tottenham are keen on the 29-year-old, with the Red Devils said to be looking to add to their attack in the next transfer window.

And while Jimenez has insisted that he is “calm” about speculation linking him with another Premier League club, Don Balon claims that he has his heart set on a move to Anfield.

The report claims that the Mexico international has “fallen exhausted at the feet” of German boss Jurgen Klopp, who the striker believes will “make the best” of him.

Indeed, the feeling is said to be mutual and Klopp wants Jimenez to be part of his project, with the Reds manager set to stay at Anfield until 2024 after signing extended terms in December.

 

Elsewhere, Don Balon also claims that Jimenez’s agent, Jorge Mendes, wants his client to return to former club Atletico Madrid but the attacker is against such a proposal.

In other news, a Liverpool youngster signed in 2018 has predicted that his breakthrough to the team will come sooner rather than later.
