'From what I'm hearing...' - Exclusive: Darren Bent tips Man United to sign Wolves player
Darren Bent has tipped Man United or Chelsea to sign Wolves striker Raul Jimenez this summer.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, the ex-Spurs and England striker hailed the Mexican forward as a bona fide Premier League star after two excellent campaigns at Molineux.
Jimenez joined Wolves from Benfica on an initial loan that became permanent last April for a club-record fee of £30million.
Bent has been blown away by the impact that Jimenez has made in a gold shirt and believes Wolves could have a major job holding on to him this summer.
“What a signing he has been,” Bent told Football Insider. “He is a very good player who has had a great season.
“From what I’m hearing, there will be a lot of top clubs trying to sign him in the summer.

“He could do a job at Chelsea. I can see Manchester United or Chelsea coming in for him.
“Jimenez knows the Premier League, so that is the advantage so he would be a great signing for either.”
Jimenez has scored 20 goals and provided nine assists from 38 appearances in all competitions for Wolves this season, with 11 goals and six assists coming in the Premier League.
The 82-times Mexico international has an excellent record for the Midlands big spenders, with his 82 matches for the club now yielding 37 goals and 17 assists.
