Wolves have announced the permanent signing of on-loan striker Raul Jimenez on a four-year deal.

Jimenez joined newly promoted Wolves on a temporary deal from Benfica at the start of the Premier League season and has proven an instant hit at Molineux.

The Mexico international has featured in each of his side’s 32 league matches this term, scoring 12 times as Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have climbed to seventh in their first season back in the top flight.

Jimenez, 27, has also netted three goals in Wolves’ run to the last four of the FA Cup, with a semi-final against Watford to come at Wembley this weekend.

Forming a dynamic partnership with Diogo Jota, Jimenez has also provided seven assists this season for a Wolves team that has made a habit of earning positive results against the ‘big six’.

Wolves have twice beaten Manchester United and have also defeated Liverpool and Chelsea this term.

“The impact Raul has made during his short time at the club has been fantastic and we’re delighted that he’ll be part of the club’s long-term future,” Wolves sporting director Kevin Thelwell said.

“Raul’s permanent signing shows the ambition of this football club and the determination to make sure the future is an exciting one.”
