Striker, Raul Jimenez has been a regular goal scorer during 2018/19, while on loan at Molineux.
The 27-year-old centre-forward initially joined the club on a season long loan, becoming Nuno Espirito Santo’s first new signing of summer 2018, before his move from Benfica became permanent the following year.
Jimenez has won 62 caps for his country, scoring 14 goals, and made two appearances for Mexico out in Russia.
Jimenez began his career for Club América, helping his boyhood side clinch two Liga MX titles, before securing a move to Europe and Atlético Madrid.
After a season and 21 appearances in Spain, the six-foot-two-inch striker moved to Benfica where he helped fire the Lisbon outfit to back-to-back Primeira Liga titles.
In 120 appearances for Benfica he scored 31 goals and created 15, and averaged a goal or assist every 75 minutes in last season’s title winning campaign.
Jimenez also has 22 Champions League appearances to his name, as well as Portuguese Cup, Portuguese League Cup and Portuguese Super Cup winners medals.
The combative frontman also won gold whilst representing his country at the London 2012 Olympics.
After his opening day header against Everton, Jimenez has continue to fire in gold and black.
