Raul Jimenez and Diego Costa face uncertain futures at Wolves this summer

Raul Jimenez and Diego Costa face uncertain futures at Wolves this summer

Wolverhampton Wanderers strikers Raul Jimenez and Diego Costa are facing uncertain futures amid plans for a squad overhaul this summer, according to Sky Sports (via Football Daily).

Jimenez has made just 13 Premier League appearances this season while starting seven and has contributed just one assist in that span.

The 32-year-old has failed to recapture his goalscoring form since suffering a severe injury and has not made the matchday squad since March.

The Mexico international striker has fallen below the pecking order at Molineux, leaving his long-term future at the club in serious doubt.

Jimenez has a contract that runs until 2024, but Wolves could look to sell him this summer to raise funds amid plans to reinforce the squad.

Striking counterpart Costa, who signed a short-term deal when he joined on a free transfer in September, is also facing a similar fate.

The 34-year-old has made 21 appearances for Wolves this term, but his only goal for the club came in the 2-0 victory against Brentford last month.

Costa’s short-term contract runs out on July 1, and reports suggest there is an outside chance the former Chelsea man could earn a new deal at Molineux.

However, there are currently no talks of an extended contract, and the Spanish striker could be on the move again at the end of the season.

Adama Traore and Joao Moutinho could also leave the club, with both players out of contract this summer.

Wolves are bracing themselves for offers for Ruben Neves, who has long been courted by several European giants, including Manchester United and Barcelona.

Wolves have been opposed to the idea of selling the 26-year-old, who has a contract that runs until 2024, but could be forced to cash in while his stock is still high.
