​Wolves striker Jimenez admits he wants big move

Wolves striker Raul Jimenez is not hiding his desire to get a move to a bigger club.

The striker is the most important player in the Molineaux club's squad, as he has scored 32 goals for the club in the past year and a half.

But the 28-year-old may not be committed for the long term, as he admitted his desire to move in the future.

The striker told reporters: "The most important thing for me is to keep moving forward.

"I am happy with Wolves, but I always have to seek something more and keep fighting.

"This has been the best year of my career - but I want more.

"We are [joint] fifth in the table. The other day my dad asked me: "Where would you go if a top-six English club wanted to sign you?"

"I told him I'm with the fifth-placed team! I'm above various clubs that people consider to be the top six, and it's wonderful here.

"But I'd have to look at the conditions [of a possible move], if they suited myself, Wolves and the other club.

"However it would always be to improve my career.

"Wolves paid £30m for me, and if they sell me it'll surely be for more. I will keep on working.

"I would never rule out returning to Spain. I have good memories, and I would like to go back at some point.

"I want to try out La Liga once more, as I didn't get to play much the previous time.

"Returning is not off the agenda. I have played at the Nou Camp and the Bernabeu."
