Arsenal fans rave about Raul Jimenez after scoring against Liverpool

After enjoying an impressive first campaign in the Premier League with Wolves, Raul Jimenez has really kicked on again in his second season in English football.

The Mexico international struck 17 times for the Molineux side last season, and following his goal against Liverpool on Thursday night, has taken his tally to 20 goals for this year.

It’s therefore been no surprise to see some of the top clubs interested in securing his services, with Manchester United reported to be interested in him.

But following his performance against the Reds in mid-week, Arsenal fans took to Twitter to urge their club to make a move for the Wolves marksman.

Some Gunners supporters brought Alexandre Lacazette into the conversation, with one fan in particular admitting that Jimenez is what they hoped the Frenchman would be.

One fan in particular raised a particularly interesting point about how Jimenez could teach Gabriel Martinelli everything he knows, before the latter takes over the reins for good.

Whilst Jimenez is a few weeks older than Lacazette, and wouldn’t exactly represent the young option, the Mexican would bring Premier League-proven quality to Arsenal’s front-line. And quite crucially, a bit of consistency too. The Gunners’ number nine has endured a major struggle as of late, failing to net in his last seven Premier League games. Wolves’ marksman on the other hand, has not gone more than four league games without scoring this year.

All strikers do go through rough patches, and Arsenal will certainly be hoping Lacazette can come out through the other side of his. But if he doesn’t, they could do a lot worse than a swoop for Jimenez.

Meanwhile, Arsenal fans react to interest in their latest centre-back target.
