Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly set to sign Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez during this summer's transfer window.

The Mexico international has been in excellent form at club level during the 2019-20 campaign, scoring 26 times and registering 10 assists in 53 appearances in all competitions.

United recently extended Odion Ighalo's loan stay at the club until January 2021, but the Red Devils are still thought to be in the market for a new forward this summer.

According to RTP, the 20-time English champions are closing in on a move for the 29-year-old, with Braga's Paulinho expected to arrive at Molineux as the Mexican's replacement.

The speculation surrounding Jimenez's future has gathered pace in recent weeks, with Juventus and Liverpool also believed to be admirers of the former Atletico Madrid striker.

United, who will play Champions League football next season courtesy of finishing third in the Premier League table, will resume their Europa League campaign on August 5.
