Raul Jimenez is too good for Wolves and Manchester United should make a move to bring the Mexican to Old Trafford this summer, according to talkSPORT host Jason Cundy.
United have been great to watch in 2020, with their new-look front three of Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood scoring for fun and earning widespread praise, especially since the Premier League restart.
But the club have been urged from some quarters to sign a top class centre-forward this summer to spearhead their attack and help them battle for top honours again.
And former Chelsea defender Cundy believes Jimenez fits the bill, saying he’s ‘in the same bracket as Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane’.
The Mexican ace has struck 26 goals in 52 appearances for the Molineux club this season, helping Wolves to sixth in the Premier League and still within reach of what would be a remarkable top-four finish.
And Cundy reckons the 29-year-old frontman should be one of United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodwood’s top targets.
“He is too good for that Wolves side,” said the Sports Bar host.
“Is he a Champions League player, yes or no? If the answer is ‘yes’ then he has to be thinking bigger and better right now.
“I don’t doubt that Wolves are going in the right direction, and they don’t have to sell him, but I’m talking about the individual. Wolves are a brilliant side but sentiment does not come into it.
“He is a wonderful football player. He is in the same bracket as Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane – he is that good.
“If I was Ed Woodward, go and get him. You can’t get Kane right now. Kane is going to be tough and he’s had injury problems.
“Can you imagine putting Jimenez in a side that could potentially create more problems?”
