The Mexico international striker has committed his future to the Premier League club, with there no desire on his part to take on a new challenge

Raul Jimenez has brought the speculation regarding his future at Wolves to a close by signing a new contract through to the summer of 2024.

The Mexico international has seen his efforts at Molineux spark talk of a move elsewhere being made.

Manchester United and Juventus are said to have formed part of a lengthy list of suitors.

Wolves’ reigning Player of the Year has, however, decided to stay put and continue working under Nuno in the West Midlands.

He has recorded 46 goals through 103 appearances for his current employers and believes there will be many more memorable moments for him to come.

Jimenez told Wolves’ official website on penning fresh terms: “I am delighted to be here and to be at this great club. Since I was a little boy, I just wanted to play, I wanted to enjoy it, live it, and that’s why I am here for.

“They give me all the confidence and the opportunity to be an important guy at the front, and that’s what I was looking for when I arrived into Europe, and I’m very happy to continue at this club.

“It didn’t take much persuading! It was easy for me to say yes because since the beginning, this is what I was looking for.

“The last two seasons we have given very good performances, so I knew this club has something special and I’m part of a big family here.

“I think Wolves are getting the best out of me, and I’m giving Wolves my best football, but they are giving the best to me too.”

Jimenez added on his ambition: “We reached seventh place the last two seasons, we got into the Europa League in my first season, but I think we can do better.

“We can be in the top six, but we have to think big, we have to aim high, and then we have to prove it. We can talk about it, but we have to prove it on the pitch.

“We have to play well and make the fans happy. Being in the top six and a return to the European competitions would be amazing, it’s what we all want, and we are working for that.”

With any uncertainty surrounding Jimenez brought to a close prior to Monday’s transfer deadline, Wolves are free to give a Premier League home date with Fulham on Sunday their full attention.
