Raul Jimenez continues to standout in the English Premier League as he has made himself a significant role player with the club team. With 39 goals in 86 games since joining the club team, Jimenez deserves high praise.
With all the recent news in the last few months of many Mexican players returning to either the MLS, Liga MX or simply not getting enough playing time with their club teams in the European leagues, there is one player that continues to stand out tremendously. The frontman of the national team of Mexico and Wolverhampton, Raul Jimenez, has made a huge splash in the Premier League since joining the team in the summertime in 2018.
Currently, in the 2019-2020 season, Jimenez has played a total of 28 games, scoring 13 goals and 6 assists keeping the Wolves in the 6th position with 42 points that have sparked much interest from many club teams around the European leagues.
Manchester United and Atletico Madrid of La Liga have drawn interest in bringing aboard the frontman of Mexico but It all has been high speculation at the moment. In recent reports, Wolves have made It clear that they do not intend to sell the forward as the interest of Jimenez has brought high attraction by man Mexican fans by a high percentage and his contract is not up until 2023.
Which it all makes sense since really only Raul Jimenez and Jose de Jesus Corona of Porto in the Portuguese league have kept relevant in the news to say. Yes, we know that Edson Alvarez, Erick Gutierrez in the Dutch league, Andres Guardado and Diego Lainez in La Liga are also competing within their club teams but they have not made a big splash as Raul Jimenez week in and week. Oh, and we have not forgotten of Hirving Lozano of Napoles in the Italian league but that’s another story of the savvy striker watching the games from the bench in the recent weeks.
The 28-year-old Mexican forward is a reliable striker also with the national team of Mexico has he helped Gerardo Martino reach and win the Gold Cup 2019 beating the United States Men’s Soccer team in the summertime and surely will be an unstoppable player on the roster leading to the World Cup 2022. Jimenez also stated that he did not mind participating in the upcoming Olympic Games this summer starting in late July ending mid-August if he is considered in the roster.
Do not forget that Jimenez is approaching his 29th birthday in May that would consider him one out of the three players over the age that can be taken to the Olympic games.
Overall, Jimenez is in a great position in the English Premier League and should continue with the club has his presence is felt in every game. Hopefully, he can break records and standout for many Mexican players that dream to be part of the EPL.
