Last Thursday, December 17, the Mexican forward Raúl Jiménez returned to visit the Wolverhampton team's training sessions and be able to chat with his teammates. Coach Nuno Espirito Santo announced that the Mexican soccer player is progressing and improving very well. The Wolves strategist spoke about the progress made by the Mexican player after his skull fracture against Arsenal almost 3 weeks ago.
The coach assures that there is still no exact date for the return of the forward and that it is possible that the Mexican will not rejoin football in the medium term once his recovery is complete. Despite this news about the Wolves forward's health, many fans were surprised as they expected the forward's return early next year.
The Wolves will look to bring in a forward in the January transfer window who can fill the absence of Jimenez, who scored 27 goals last season. One of the main options is Liverpool striker Divock Origi, who has had very little participation with the team adding only two Premier League games and 192 minutes in the Champions League.
The player is expected to be loaned and not sold to the Wolves, which would be good news, as no money would have to be paid for him. Origi would not be the only player of interest to Wolverhampton as there are other offers that interest the club, but they will take place once the transfer market starts.
