In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Steve Bull, who scored 306 goals during his career for Wolves, has claimed that Rafa Mir could replace Raul Jimenez as the main striker after one more spell out on loan.
Mir has been enjoying his time out in Spain with SD Huesca where he has managed to score 24 goals in 49 games, which includes 12 this campaign – and 15 in all competitions – as they look to fight off relegation from La Liga.
Despite playing in a team that is occupying the final relegation spot, Mir’s goals have given Huesca a chance of survival with the 22-year old having netted more times than both Antoine Griezmann and Joao Felix.
Speaking on Mir’s future at Wolves and how another loan spell away from Molineux could benefit the striker, Bull told FFC:
“He could turn into a great striker so Wolves could send him back out on loan again for another six to eight months where he can get more game time and goals under his belt. Therefore, when he comes back he can replace Jimenez.”
Wolves have struggled for goals this season with Ruben Neves and Pedro Neto topping the goal-scoring charts with five in the Premier League this season.
Nuno Espirito Santo will be hoping for better performances next season when Raul Jimenez is back and firing for Wolves.
