Tottenham Hotspur are still without a senior back-up to Harry Kane, which was highlighted by the England captain’s injury this season.
After selling Vincent Janssen, letting Fernando Llorente leave on a free, and failing to hand young Troy Parrott many chances, Spurs were left without a natural strike option.
However, the Lilywhites have been linked to a few names ahead of the summer transfer window, including in-form Wolves forward, Raul Jiminez.
ESPN reported that Tottenham see the striker as potential competition for Kane up top.
The man himself has now claimed that, as Wolves paid £35m for him two years ago, the club would not accept a penny less today. Jiminez also revealed that he has no release clause in his current contract.
He also made a point of stating that Wolves are in fifth, fighting for a Champions League spot, and defeated both Man City and Tottenham this season.
Jiminez said (Marca): “(Wolves) bought me for £35 million, they will not sell me for less. There is no release clause.
“But the teams here, it is different how they are managed.
“I see a lot of people talking and saying that (I should play for) a ‘top 6 team’. Right now we are in fifth place. I mean, outside Liverpool who are way above this season, I think we are fighting with everyone else. We beat Man City twice, we beat Tottenham once, we drew with Man United.”
