Wolves striker Raul Jimenez has said he would not be able to say no if big clubs including Barcelona came calling for him this summer.

The Mexico international has been a big hit in the Premier League since joining from Portuguese side Benfica in 2015.

Jimenez had netted 22 times for Wolves in all competitions in 2019-20 before the competition was halted due to the coronavirus which has fuelled speculation over his future

The striker says he wants to stay in England but admitted if a big club did express an interest he wouldn’t turn it down.

“If you tell me that tomorrow an offer from Real Madrid or Barcelona comes, it is obvious that you do not let such an opportunity go. But if I stay here I am fighting to qualify for the Champions League, for important things.

“Fighting for the title still seems difficult but we are in the Europe League round-of-16. I think that I made the right decision to come here [to Wolves] and I do not regret it.

“Leaving the doors open for anything is the most important thing. With Wolves we are fighting for the Champions League, I am happy and I am an important player for the fans and for the team. I am fine, I do not close any doors, I am open to whatever comes but it does not stop me sleeping.”

Barcelona are after a striker in the summer transfer window to replace the ageing Luis Suarez but haven’t been linked with Jimenez yet. Don’t be surprised at all if his name pops up between now and the window opening.
