Darren Bent has tipped the likes of Chelsea to make a move for Wolves hitman Raul Jimenez at the end of the season.
After becoming the club’s top scorer in Premier League history – netting his 23rd league goal to overtake Steven Fletcher’s 22, interest in a Premier League deal has taken another leap forward, with Chelsea hot on the list of possible suitors
Jimenez, 28, has 10 goals and six assists in the Premier League this season for Champions League hopefuls Wolves, and we believe that he could be a good buy for the Chelsea, especially after Frank Lampard failed to sign any players during the January transfer window. And former Premier League striker Bent has claimed that Chelsea may already be exploring the idea of a move for Jimenez during the summer transfer window.
“What a signing he has been,” Bent told FOOTBALL INSIDER . “He is a very good player who has had a great season. “From what I’m hearing, there will be a lot of top clubs trying to sign him in the summer. “He could do a job at Chelsea. I can see Manchester United or Chelsea coming in for him.
“Jimenez knows the Premier League, so that is the advantage so he would be a great signing for either.”
Look, Chelsea do not need to add a world class striker that will take the place of Abraham, they need a forward to come in and help the young Englishman out throughout the course of the season.
Relatively quick, a great finisher, strong in the air and the ability to hold the ball up and bring others into play, the man has all the class and quality to be a real star and if Chelsea are seeking to add another striker to the line-up, £40 million for this lad is a great bit of business.
