Raul Jimenez has opened up on his future at Wolves, insisting he is happy at the club despite recent links to Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham.

Amid links with some of the top clubs in England, in form Wolves striker Raul Jimenez has opened up about his future and what his plans are beyond his playing career.

The 29-year-old is enjoying a stellar campaign, bagging 16 goals and supplying nine assists in all competitions this term.

Jimenez has seen his fine performances attract the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United who are keen on his signature.

The Red Devils particularly came close to securing a move in January but a move failed to materialize and they opted to sign Odion Ighalo instead.

Jimenez now insists he plans to honor his contract at the club, as he is very happy with where he is at the moment.

“I have a contract until 2023,” Jimenez said during a Facebook Live session.

“It’s not that we have to qualify for the Champions League in order to stay. I’m good [here], happy with Wolves, doing important things – me as well as the whole team.

“We’ve been trying our best since the start of last season. We’ve qualified for the Europa League, now we’re fighting for a Champions League spot.

“And it’s the big motivation to keep growing as a player and getting into the Champions League is always a plus that satisfies you and keeps you thinking about big things.”

Jimenez also spoke about his desire to remain in football when he hangs his boots with his eyes towards coaching or potentially being a pundit.

“I then want to be a coach or take a position on TV, but I will continue in football.”
