Raul Jimenez has become 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, and we should make a move.
Olivier Giroud is on his way out the club, Michy Batshuayi not promising, and Tammy Abraham still has a lot to learn in the game, so Frank Lampard needs to spend some serious money in order to complete a deal for Jimenez.
As we said, he is now one of the most deadly players in the Premier League, so if he has the opportunity to play for one of the Leagues biggest clubs, he could be one of the best strikers in Europe.
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 we are seeking to add another striker to the line-up, £40 million for this lad is a great bit of business.
We have been linked with so many strikers that will need time to adjust to the Premier League, why not spend that money on a player that is already proven in the Premier League?
If Lampard need to add another striker to the squad, then the boss should look no further than a deal for Jimenez as he has all the ability and quality to come in and make a real impact on teh side.
Yes we have been linked with a move for Edinson Cavani, but he will need time to adjust to the Premier League and quite honestly, we believe that he is not the striker to help solve our issues. Going for Jimenez would be a shock move, but the man has proven himself in the Premier League and surely he could be a fantastic buy?
