Raul Jimenez

Premier League giants Arsenal have been urged to sign Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez this summer.

The Gunners were advised by footballer turned pundit Craig Burley who’s a regular on ESPN.

According to him, Arsenal should sign Raul Jimenez as a possible replacement for either Alexandre Lacazette or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Lacazette and Aubameyang have one year and two years left on their respective Arsenal contract. There are doubts over the availability of the two Arsenal strikers ahead of next season.

Several Arsenal fans want the club to sell Alexandre Lacazette to raise some cash to bolster the playing squad, while the same fans want the Gunners to do everything possible to retain the services of Gabonese international Aubameyang.

French international striker Lacazette has not been in the best of forms in front of goal this season and that has affected the Gunners a great deal. He has not scored an away goal in the Premier League for the better part of the last one year.

In stark contrast, Aubameyang has scored on a consistent basis. He is the leading goalscorer in the Premier League with 17 goals alongside Leicester City star Jamie Vardy.

Craig Burley believes that Mexican international attacker Raul Jimenez has the quality to thrive at a big club like Arsenal. He is the main striker at Wolverhampton Wanderers who are in the mix for Champions League football via the Premier League.

Wolves are in sixth position on the league table and three points off Chelsea in fourth place. They have the same point as Manchester United in fifth place.

Manchester United target Jimenez is in his first full season at Wolves following his £30m permanent transfer last year after a successful loan spell at the club from Benfica in Portugal.

He has scored 13 league goals in 28 games plus nine strikes in 12 Europa League matches.
