Manchester City to compete with Juventus for Raul Jimenez

Premier League champions Manchester City are reportedly set to compete with Juventus for Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez. 

Jimenez has established himself as a proven goalscorer in the Premier League since he arrived at Wolves in 2019. Naturally, the Mexican striker has attracted a host of admirers.

 According to Tuttomercatoweb, Manchester City and Juventus will battle each other for the signature of Raul Jimenez. 

Why do Manchester City and Juventus want to sign Raul Jimenez?

Despite him missing a year through a horrific head injury, Jimenez is now back amongst the goals. He is once again one of the most sought after strikers in Europe. 

Following the failure to sign Tottenham star Harry Kane, Pep Guardiola and his City team have been left without a first-team striker for the season. They have now identified Jimenez as a short-term candidate to fill the gap. The 30-year-old still has plenty to offer and consistently plays at a high level in England’s top flight. 

Jimenez would certainly be a good signing for City. Although it wouldn’t be a long term solution, his physical presence up front would provide a different dimension for Pep Guardiola to work with.

Juventus lost Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United this summer, and are on the hunt for replacements. The Italians did sign Moise Kean from Everton but are looking to bolster their options in attack and provide more competition for young forward. Raul Jimenez seems to be the preferred choice, but the Seria A giants will face competition for their services.

The Mexican international scored his first league goal in nearly a year in the victory against Southampton last weekend. This came, following a career-threatening skull fracture suffered against Arsenal last November.

Jimenez has made 116 appearances across all competitions for Wolves, scoring 49 goals and providing 18 assists. He has three years left on his contract at Molineux.
