Biography

A prolific goal scorer during his time at Wolves, Raul Jimenez leads the line to great effect for Nuno Espirito Santo.

The forward has the honour of being the highest scoring Mexican in a single season and has bettered his 2018/19 tally in 2019/20, netting with regularity in all competition.

Jimenez has won 62 caps for his country, scoring 14 goals, and made two appearances for Mexico out in Russia.

The forward 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 netting on his Wolves debut against Everton, Jimenez hasn’t looked back, hitting 17 goals in all competitions during his opening campaign and smashing that record during 2019/20.
