    Raul Jimenez

    Reputedly it will take 38 million Euros to make him a Wolves player. Is he worth that?

    In my view heís a tireless worker, but will at best be worth 10
    Goals a season, a similar number of assists, and his defensive contribution. Does that make his value that much greater than Adobe, seven times the value of Bonatini?

    I think he has been excellent for Wolves. A player is only worth what a club is willing to pay for him. I actually think the reported fee is steep though. I also think he offers so much more than both Afobe and Bonatini.

    I canít imagine heíd cost that much. If he was that valuable, his club wouldnít have let him go out on loan to begin with. Heíd be at their club helping them win games or already been sold for a solid fee.

    We could get a better player for that much. Not to say he hasnít been good for us. Does a lot of important things for the team. But if we are spending almost 40 mil, that player would be expected to score 10 goals or more the rest of the season

    I agree that Jimenez offers more than Afobe and Bonatini, also that his clubs valuation is high, Iíll be shocked if we pay that much for him.

    It surprising really that given how through Nuno and the club are that they went into a premier season with 2 forwards (with one of those allegedly shot) and no midfield enforcer but hopefully in January we will strengthen the squad. I guess Nuno puts great store into having a tight squad ?

    I like Jimenez and think he is a big asset to the team. We all know what he does well and the big contribution he makes. But 38M, I don't think so, 20 more like it.

    Someones agent has stirred the pot and various press outlets have done the rest! I believe we may well sign Raul and he would be an attribute, but as Woody said, considering his goal return for us albeit unlucky (legit goals disallowed,hitting the woodwork etc) he is currently worth £12-£15 million in my opinion.

    I must admit though that he made a big difference when he came on against Newcastle, everyone seemed to step up a gear.

    If reports are to be believed then Wolves look like announcing the permanent signing of Jimenez tomorrow. There's a bit of teaser on Wolves twitter hinting that something is happening.

    Very happy with this if itís true... such a hard worker... his partnership with Jota... his goals and assists.

In striving for success he has been tireless, and with his strike partner, Jota, he's been the business end of a Wolves 'counter-attack' that has made most other PL teams sit up and take notice. I'm absolutely delighted at the thought of having him in our ranks next season and thereafter.

    Interesting reading some of the early posts about Jimenez, I am glad he has changed peoples opinions. We just need him to stick a few away on Sunday. The signing also sends out a message to other clubs that we mean business.

    So Spurs keep your hands of Jota.

    That crossed my mind too Abbo, Jimenez and our fortunes changed when Nuno bought Dendoncker in and we went two up top. That little change suited the team defensively and Jimenez and Jota as a forward partnership, we're seeing the best of them both now...

    Spurs are supposedly interested in another Jota, a teenager at Benfica already valued at 30 million euros!

    Yes they are Gav, but a number of Spurs fans are calling for their club to sign Jota from Wolves.

    I think you have got me and Norton mixed up here!
