Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez is currently undergoing ‘early fitness work’ as his recovery from a fractured skull begins.
The Mexican forward suffered the injury in a 2-1 win against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium at the end of November, leading to surgery.
The West Midlands club have confirmed that his recovery is going positively and he has already begun fitness work.
A club statement read: “Raul is five weeks since his surgery following a fractured skull and is doing some early fitness work, but still has a way to go, however things are going well.”
Since joining Wolves from Benfica initially on loan in 2018, Jimenez has been an inspirational figure at Molineux.
The 29-year-old has scored 47 goals in 110 appearances, and was a huge reason behind the club’s run to the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals in the 2020/21 season.
Wolves have been in extremely indifferent form without their main marksman though, winning just one out of the seven Premier League games that they have played since his injury.
They turn their attention to the FA Cup this weekend, facing off with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Friday evening. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men can be backed at a price of 21/20 with William Hill to win the game.
