Manchester United favourites to sign Wolves hitman Raul Jiménez

Could the striker be the man United need?

Manchester United have been installed as the clear favourites to sign Wolves striker Raul Jiménez this summer, with punters backing the move.  

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have been cut from 4/1 into 2/1 to sign the Mexican maestro, with the club in desperate need of another striker.  

Punters have been backing the move this morning, with 78% of all bets on the market going United's way.

Manchester City is the other club being priced up by bookmakers, although they’re predicting it as a far less likely switch at 12/1

WhoScored.com revealed that in his two Premier League seasons, he has had a direct hand in more league goals (43) than any other Manchester United player (Rashford closest to matching him, with 40). 

Also, only Chris Wood (11) has scored more headed goals (8) than Jimenez in the Premier League since the start of last season, that just one fewer than Manchester United (9). 

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: "It's fair to say Raul Jimenez has been one of the most consistent Premier League strikers over the last couple of years, and it's no surprise the Mexican has caught the eye of Manchester 
United. 

"While his acquisition would be greatly welcomed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, there are certain clubs out there who would benefit more from his services, as well as guaranteeing him much more playing time."

Raul Jiménez next club odds:  
Manchester United – 2/1 
Manchester City – 14/1
