Mexican side Club América are eyeing a move for Fulham’s Raúl Jiménez this summer as a replacement for Julián Quiñones, who appears set to move to Saudi Arabia.

That’s according to Infobae, who report that the Fulham striker is seen as the ‘outstanding option’ for the club to replace their departing star.

They explain that Club América are in the middle of a crucial week as they’re set to face Cruz Azul in the Clausura Tournament Final as well as potentially losing Quiñones as he’s received a bid from Saudi Arabia.

The club’s board, with Héctor González Iñárritu and Santiago Baños, are preparing to look for replacements and Jiménez is seen as the ‘outstanding option’.

He started his career at the club before moving to Atletico Madrid in 2014 and has been in Europe ever since, moving to Benfica, Wolves and now Fulham.

He’s long made it clear he would like to return to the Mexican side at some point in his career and is ‘willing to return’ this summer.

Why that is the case isn’t made clear, but he is in the final year of his contract at Fulham and has found himself replaced by Rodrigo Muniz this season so perhaps that is behind the idea.

Either way he is open to the idea and Club América are ready to explore the idea should Quiñones head to Saudi Arabia.
