Rio Ferdinand believes Wolves striker Raul Jimenez offers Manchester United a different option in the summer transfer window. Jimenez has scored 20 goals in all competitions for Wolves.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must reinforce his attacking options this summer, and Jimenez is an experienced goalscorer. The Mexican forward has earned huge praise for his performance.
United legend Ferdinand believes the club should explore the option of signing the 29-year-old.
“I think to be honest with you, Wolves will do well to keep hold of him,” Ferdinand told BT Sport, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News.
“He’s a player of immense talent. I think his goal-scoring record over the last two years has been really good. Before that, it was a bit shady but he’s come to the Premier League and hit the ground running.
"He’s been a breath of fresh air. As you can see, a great character around the place. For a top club, I wouldn’t be surprised, we’ve seen reports in the media around the last few days. I wouldn’t say no, not at all (to join Manchester United). He’s something different to what they’ve got. What I like about him is he scores all types of goals. He’s at the back post heading things in, bullying defenders and he can score tremendous goals out of nothing.”
Wolves completed the permanent signing of Jimenez for around £30m in 2019 after he impressed during a loan spell from Benfica.
