Wolves have shared a video on social media on Tuesday evening, featuring star striker Raul Jimenez.
Jimenez suffered a serious injury back in November vs Arsenal, which saw him stretchered off following a clash of heads with David Luiz.
It was subsequently revealed that Jimenez had suffered a fractured skull, and he has not featured for Wolves since.
Speaking last month, though, Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo revealed his hope that the Mexican could feature again this season:
Q: Will Raul Jimenez play this season?
Nuno: “We are truly positive that this can happen. It’s very good news. It’s very good news the way he keeps improving day by day.”

And now, the aforementioned video posted on Wolves’ official Twitter account has hinted that Nuno may be proven correct.
The clip, which is over two minutes long, showcases Jimenez training away from the rest of the club’s squad, doing various drills, several of which involve the hitman having the ball at his feet:

Coady praises Jose
In Jimenez’s absence, Wolves were of course left quite short in the striking department.
This led to Nuno Santo’s side bringing in Willian Jose on loan from Real Sociedad for the rest of the season.
However, Jose is actually yet to open his account for his new club.
Despite such struggles, though, Wolves skipper Conor Coady was full of praise for the Brazilian during a recent interview:
“He gives us so much. Even when you try to play up from the keeper and you go a little bit longer into him, into his chest and he holds it up because he’s strong and powerful. “
He gives us so much, as does every striker in this football club, but he’s been fantastic since he came in, he’s a brilliant lad and you can see that he’s learning, he’s learning with each and every game.
“What he brings to our team is brilliant, so hopefully his goal will come soon, but the most important thing is that he’s helping our team, no end.”
