Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Raul Jimenez has attracted interest from Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United in recent times but has insisted that a move to Spain would also be considered.

The 26-year-old has been an integral part at the Molineux and has led the club into the advanced stages of the Europa League while battling for a top four finish.

Jimenez failed to thrive at Atletico Madrid in the early part of his career but has admitted that he would welcome a return to the Spanish La Liga with a move to Real Madrid or Barcelona, although he remains keen to play a vital role under Nuno Espirito Santo at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

“I find out [about transfer links] through social media,” He said. “They have already put me at Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and every day comes out a new team that want me.


“I have to be calm. If they are talking about me, it is because I am doing things well; I would like to continue in England. I am happy, adapted and I like the idea [of staying in the Premier League].

“If you tell me that tomorrow an offer from Real Madrid or Barcelona comes, it is obvious that you do not let such an opportunity go, but if I stay here, I am fighting to qualify for the Champions League, for important things.

“Fighting for the title still seems difficult but we are in the Europe League round of 16. I think that I made the right decision to come here and I do not regret it.

“Leaving the doors open for anything is the most important thing. With Wolves we are fighting for the Champions League, I am happy. and I am an important player for the fans and for the team.

“I am fine, I do not close any doors, I am open to whatever comes but it does not stop me sleeping.”

The fact that the forward has left doors open could get clubs intrigued and willing to make an offer for him, with Man United, Chelsea and Arsenal all interested.
