Pundit Danny Murphy suggests that Manchester United should attempt to sign a forward in the mould of Wolverhampton Wanderers star Raul Jimenez.

Danny Murphy has suggested that Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Raul Jimenez would represent the ideal signing for Manchester United.

In his year-and-a-half at Molineux, Jimenez has proven to be a huge hit with 32 goals being scored from 71 appearances in all competitions.

However, while acknowledging that he is happy at Wolves, the Mexico international has hinted at another move in the future, something which Murphy feels United should attempt to take advantage of in one of the upcoming transfer windows.

Speaking with Matthew Upson on Sky Sports' Debate Show, Murphy said: "You mentioned Jimenez at Wolves. Wolves fans won't like it but he's a quality player. He's that type you're talking about.

"I agree, centre-forward is very important and if [Marcus] Rashford was injured or [Daniel] James was injured, [Anthony] Martial can play wide if they had another striker."

Jimenez still has over three-and-a-half years remaining on his contract at Wolves.
