Premier League champions Manchester City and Serie A giants Juventus are reportedly interested in signing Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez.

The Mexican scored his first league goal in nearly a year in the victory against Southampton last weekend, following a career-threatening skull fractured suffered against Arsenal last November.

Jimenez has established himself as a proven goalscorer in the Premier League since arriving at Molineux in 2019 and according to Tuttomercatoweb, City and Juve will battle each other for the 30-year-old's services.

Following their failed attempts to lure Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur this summer, Man City remain in the transfer market for a striker and have identified Jimenez as a short-term candidate to fill the void.

As for Juventus, they are looking to bolster their options in attack and provide more competition for young forward Moise Kean, who was signed this summer after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United.

Jimenez, who has three years remaining on his contract, has made 116 appearances across all competitions for Wolves, scoring 49 goals and providing 18 assists.
