Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has said he love to see Raul Jimenez move to Old Trafford, and believes the Wolves striker would offer something different to what the club already have.
The Mexico international has enjoyed another stellar campaign, scoring 17 goals in the Premier League and attracting interest from top European clubs including Barcelona, Juventus, Liverpool and United.
Despite Anthony Martial thriving in the No.9 role at Old Trafford, Ferdinand feels Jimenez can provide the focal point in attack that we have been missing.
“I think Wolves will do well to keep hold of him,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.
“I think he’s a player with immense talent and I think his goalscoring record over the last two years has been really good.
“Before that, his record was a bit shady, but he has come to the Premier League and hit the ground running. He’s been a breath of fresh air.
“As you can tell, he seems a great character around the place, and for a top club, I wouldn’t be surprised if they are sniffing.
“We’ve seen it in the media reports in the last few days that clubs are looking.”
When asked if United should make a move for Jimenez, Ferdinand said: “I wouldn’t say no at all. I think he’s something different to what they’ve got.
“What I like about him is he scores all types of goals.
“He’s at the back post heading things and bullying defenders, and he can score tremendous goals out of nothing.”
