Fulham have signed the Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Raul Jimenez, their first arrival of the summer transfer window. 

The 32-year-old Mexico striker has joined Fulham on a two-year deal with an option for a further 12 months after spending five seasons with Wolves.

“It’s really important for me to arrive here,” Jimenez told FFCtv. “I will try to do my best for the team, one of the most iconic teams in the Premier League.

“I’m happy to be here and to play in this stadium, it’s a really good stadium, I like it here. I’m going to give my best to keep scoring goals in the Premier League.”

Jimenez enjoyed tremendous success in the Premier League during his first two seasons with Wolves, playing in every match during the 2018/19 and 2019/20 campaigns, scoring 30 goals over that period.

His goals helped the club secure back-to-back seventh-place finishes and qualification into the UEFA Europa League.  

A horrific head injury in November 2020 when playing Arsenal ended the striker’s season prematurely, but Jimenez made a full recovery and played 34 League matches during 2021/22, scoring six goals. He featured 14 times in the league for Wolves last season, without scoring.  

In total Jimenez has played 135 Premier League matches, scoring 40 goals and providing 18 assists. For Mexico he has 102 caps, scoring 30 goals and appearing in three FIFA World Cups.
