Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is not panicking over the future of loan star Raul Jimenez.
The Mexico international, who has scored 15 goals since joining Wolves on loan from Benfica last summer, has made it clear he wants to make his move permanent at the end of the season.
And the club are reportedly on the verge of signing the 27-year-old in a £25million deal, which would eclipse the £18million club-record fee they paid Middlesbrough for Adama Traore.
When asked about Jimenez’s future, Nuno said: “I know we have to make a decision, but the right moment will be the moment that will involve all the parts and then we will announce it for sure.
“It is the same situation. We know we have time to make a decision.

Jimenez opened the scoring for Wolves in their FA Cup win over Manchester United to set up a semi-final date with Watford next weekend.
His goals have also helped Wolves climb to seventh in the Premier League in an unlikely Europa League push.
After the United game, the striker revealed he would like to stay at the club beyond the 2018/19 season.
