The striker Raúl Jiménez could move from the Premier League to the Bundesliga, according to the British press.

Raúl Jiménez is currently playing for Wolverhampton Wanderers. Wolverhampton Wanderers Premier League of England, where he has slowly made a place for himself in the team and has won the affection of the fans. He is participating in his fourth season with the British squad and although he seems happy there, it looks like he could soon have a new destination.

According to the English portal Football Fancast, the German Bayern Munich Germany has been inquiring about the player and has been following him in recent times, with the intention of adding him to its ranks in the next summer transfer window.

This came to light after speculation began about FC Barcelona‘s possible interest in Polish striker Robert Lewandowski, who currently plays for the Teutonic club. Should the Pole leave for LaLiga with the team, Raúl Jiménez would replace him.

Neither Bayern, nor Wolves, much less Raúl Jiménez have spoken out about this series of rumors. Meanwhile, the Aztec striker is still under contract with Wolverhampton until 2024. Lewandowski, who has admitted that he wants to look for new horizons, turned down Bayern Munich’s offer to renew his contract.
