Man Utd fans discuss transfer interest in Wolves striker Raul Jimenez

After selling Romelu Lukaku to Serie A giants Inter in the summer, and then failing to sign a replacement before the end of the window, it is unsurprising that Manchester United have looked a touch short on goals this season.

The Red Devils have found the back of the net just 32 times in their opening 21 Premier League games, and have 18-year-old Mason Greenwood as their third-choice option up front.

According to Goal, United have turned their attentions towards Wolves striker Raul Jimenez in this January transfer window. The report claims that the Red Devils have “moved to open talks” regarding a transfer for the Mexican, particularly following Erling Braut Haaland’s decision to join Borussia Dortmund in recent weeks. It adds that negotiations are at an early stage however, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer himself admitting after the FA Cup clash against Nuno Espirito Santo’s side that he’s a “good player“.

After hearing about the links to the forward, United fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on their reported interested in him.

A couple of fans discussed Jimenez’s style of play and wondered how we would fit into the current United team, with there appearing to be a split on whether his profile is what the Red Devils need.

Some fans discussed whether Jimenez would actually be starting for Solskjaer, and questioned whether he is good enough to displace Anthony Martial from the starting line-up.

This season, the Mexico international has been in prolific form for Wolves, notching 17 times in 32 games across all competitions. But the 28-year-old has shown that he is more than just a goal-scorer too, providing an impressive nine assists. And with Premier League experience under his belt, he could be the ideal man for Solskjaer’s side, and would be able to hit the ground running.

Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s praise of this fringe man is ominous for one of Manchester United’s key stars.
