Fulham in talks to sign Mexico striker Raúl Jiménez
Jiménez is on the club’s radar as Aleksander Mitrovic wants a move to Saudi Pro League side Al Hilal.
Fulham are in talks to sign Mexico striker Raúl Jiménez, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Negotiations are currently taking place regarding a move for the Wolves player. Romano adds that the club are waiting on Marco Silva’s decision on his own future after Saudi club Al Ahli made the Portuguese tactician an offer for two years.
Al Ahli are working on the signings of Premier League players Riyad Mahrez and Allan Saint-Maximin and want a response from Silva over the managerial position.
Jiménez, 32, joined the Midlands outfit in 2019 and has a contract at Molineux until 30 June 2024. Since making the move from Benfica, he has scored 40 goals in 135 Premier League games.
Jiménez could replace Mitrovic
Jiménez is on the club’s radar as Aleksander Mitrovic wants a move to fellow Saudi Pro League side Al Hilal. Mitrovic has told relatives that he will not play for the club again after they placed a £52m price tag on the forward.
The Serbia international is angry having been priced out of a move from Craven Cottage.
