Jimenez signs a contract extension amid interest from a number of clubs from across Europe for the player’s signature.

“It didn’t take much persuading. It was easy for me to say yes because since the beginning, this is what I was looking for,” Jimenez said.

“They [Wolves] give me all the confidence and the opportunity to be an important guy at the front, and that’s what I was looking for when I arrived into Europe, and I’m very happy to continue at this club.”
