English Premier League: Raul Jimenez (56′) Chelsea 0-1 Wolves

Wolverhampton Wanderers have confirmed the permanent signing of Mexican striker Raul Jimenez on a four-year contract, in a deal believed to be worth a club-record £30 million. 

Jimenez has scored 12 Premier League goals in 32 appearances for Wolves this season while on a one-year loan from Portuguese side Benfica.

His goals have helped fire Nuno Espírito Santo’s side to seventh in the Premier League table in their first top-flight campaign since relegation in 2012. 

Wolves have also reached the semifinals of the FA Cup where they play Watford on Sunday (live on ESPN+ at 11 a.m. ET), with Jimenez scoring in their 2-1 quarterfinal win against Manchester United last week.

The 27-year-old has also scored in Wolves’ Premier League victories over Chelsea and Tottenham and is their top scorer this season with 15 goals in all competitions.
