Wolves are trying to sell Raúl Jiménez over the summer

He hasn’t adapted to the new group.

He needs to find a club where he has regularity.

Since Raúl Jiménez returned to the pitches after missing over nine months due to the head injury that he suffered back in 2020, not only his scoring streak has been diminished, but also his playing time and the adaptation to the team.

Although he’s the top scorer for Wolverhampton Wanderers this season with six goals, Bruno Lage hasn’t found a place for him in the starting XI, as he has been either benched or started as a right-winger in the most recent games, a position that he doesn’t know.

With the departures of his top associates in the offense, Diogo Jota to Liverpool FC and Adama Traoré to FC Barcelona, the performances of the 30-year-old Mexican striker are far from what he was used to do during his first years in the Premier League.

After the 5-1 defeat against Manchester City and with only two games left in the season, Wolves options for playing in a European League are almost gone, as they only have options to make it into the Conference League if they win their two games and West Ham loses both, something that evidences the changes that are coming to the roster.

Jiménez, with a foot out of Wolves

One of the changes that are more than evident is the departure of Raúl Jiménez, who has become an idol in Molineux Stadium but given the lack of production he’s had in the last year, a fresh start for both him and the club seems to be the best decision.

According to reports from Alex Crook, from the English media outlet TalkSPORT, Wolverhampton is considering selling Raúl Jiménez over the summer transfer window, and they are willing to accept offers for as little as $18.1 million for him.

It’s worth noting that before his head injury, Wolves had established a release clause for Jiménez of over $100 million, as clubs like Bayern Munich and Manchester United were interested in him, but now that his performances have come to less, they are willing to let him go for less than a fifth of said release clause.

Where can he play next season?

With the return of Traoré after Barcelona declined to exercise the option to buy, Jiménez’s doesn’t have a place in Wolves anymore, but given his experience in Premier League, his destination could remain the English top flight.
