Wolves fans react to Raul Jimenez’ impressive start to life at Molineux

The loan signing of Mexican hitman Raul Jimenez from Benfica is so far proving to be a shrewd bit of business from Nuno Espirito Santo.

Wolves‘ official Twitter account has posted in appreciation of his exploits for the Midlands club throughout his first few months in the Premier League.

He has had a direct hand in five of their 11 goals this season, scoring twice and assisting three more. The No.9’s finishing can sometimes leave something to be desired with seven big chances missed this season, the second most of any player in the division, but there is much more to his game than goals.

His ability to bring others into play was on show against Palace as he assisted for Matt Doherty. He acts as a focal point for the attack that allows Portuguese pace-men Helder Costa and Diogo Jota to make runs in behind and bides time for the wing-backs to get forward into dangerous areas.

The Express and Star understands that there is a Β£30m option-to-buy in his loan deal. Wolves fans react below to his first eight games in gold and black.
