Raul Jimenez will become a full-time Wolverhampton Wanderers player by completing a permanent move today (Thursday), according to Sky Sports.
The striker has been on loan at the Molineaux from Portuguese side Benfica this season, and he has had an impressive campaign, netting 15 times in 37 games in all competitions. It was obviously enough to prove to his temporary employers that they would be wise to secure his services for the next four years.
The fee that Wolves will be paying Benfica to make the deal happen is believed to be around the £30 million mark.
Led by manager Nuno Espirito Santo, Wolves have had a terrific season in the Premier League, following their promotion to England’s top tier last summer. They currently sit right beneath the top six having played 32 rounds, which is a tremendous achievement.
The signing of Jimenez will be a new club record, surpassing their £18 million move to sign winger Adama Traore from Middlesbrough last summer.
