Raul Jimenez admits that he is “open to anything” in terms of his football future but says he is keen to knuckle down and achieve success with Wolves.

The 29-year-old has already established himself as one of the Premier League’s most reliable goalscorers.

And he has looked as good as ever at the start of the new season.

He netted an early goal in Wolves’ 2-0 win at Sheffield United. What’s more, his header gave the Molineux outfit hope against Manchester City before the visitors pulled away.

Manchester United and Juventus are just two of the clubs previously linked with a move for the frontman.

However, after losing Diogo Jota in a £41m switch to Liverpool, Wolves fans will be encouraged to hear that Jimenez is happy to stay – for now at least.

Goal have revealed quotes from Jimenez made at an event at the Mexican Embassy in London to celebrate the company’s independence.

The striker said the “incredible” feeling of playing more Champions League football is in his sights.

He said: “I have three more seasons left [on my contract].

“If I stay here at Wolves, I’d be very happy. We know that anything can happen and there could be a change. I’m open to everything.

 

 

“I already had the luck to play some games in the Champions League. It’s something incredible and it’s in my plans to play again, but first I have to do what I have to do with Wolves.”

 

Jimenez says Wolves move was one of his best decisions

Jimenez has scored 46 goals in 102 appearances since moving to England. But he admits he initially wasn’t sure where Wolverhampton was.

He said: “I did not know.

“The little I knew of England was London, Newcastle. I knew very little about England and I didn’t know anything about Wolverhampton.

“It was one of the best decisions I’ve made. It was difficult because I was with the national team in Denmark and that’s where the offer came to me.

“They told me about the club, about the project. I said ‘it’s not a well-known team’ and I had to investigate. It was an interesting choice and to this day I do not regret having taken it.”
