Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid are allegedly contemplating whether to launch a summer bid for Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Raul Jimenez.

Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have allegedly identified Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Raul Jimenez as a potential summer signing.

Since moving to Molineux in 2018, Jimenez has established himself as one of the top frontman plying their trade in Europe, contributing 39 goals from 87 appearances in all competitions.

As a result of the Mexico international's form, speculation persists regarding a big-money switch later in 2020, with Manchester United having been suggested as a potential destination.

However, according to reports in Spain, Real and Atletico are considering whether to launch an approach for the 28-year-old, who has a contract at Molineux until 2023.

Los Blancos are looking for competition for Karim Benzema after Luka Jovic's disappointing spell at the Bernabeu, while Atletico are seemingly ready to hand Jimenez a second chance at the club after a failed loan period during the 2014-15 campaign.

While the attacker is considered indispensable by head coach Nuno Espirito Santo, the Wolves board may be prepared to consider offers in excess of £70m.
