Striker Raul Jimenez has reportedly agreed a contract with Wolverhampton Wanderers, with the club likely to take up the option to sign him permanently.

That’s according to the Express and Star, who write that Wolves have the opportunity to sign him for around £30m upon the expiry of his season-long loan from Benfica this summer.

Jimenez has led the line to great effect this season, scoring 14 goals in all competitions and 12 in the Premier League.

The ease at which he has adapted to the rigours of the English top flight has surprised many supporters and he has become a fan favourite at Molineux.

It is believed that club hierarchy will make a final decision on his future before the end of the season and that their summer recruitment strategy is already being formulated.

Nuno Espirito Santo pulled off a number of impressive moves two windows ago, bringing the likes of Rui Patricio, Willy Boly, Joao Moutinho and Jonny Castro to the Midlands.

That quality of player has propelled Wolves to 7th in the Premier League table with eight matches to play, leaving them with a real chance of Europa League qualification.

One player who will not be joining the club is £100m rated Joao Felix, with reports linking the Benfica youngster to Wolves understood to be wide of the mark.
