Raul Jimenez has again insisted that he wants to stay at Fulham – despite reports linking him with a move back to Mexico or Turkey.

The experienced striker has been linked with a return to his homeland after dropping down Marco Silva’s pecking order following Rodrigo Muniz’s remarkable rise to first choice centre forward during the second half of last season, but the former Wolves forward has told Claro Sports that he is currently only concentrating on his future at Craven Cottage.

“[Returning home] is something that has crossed my mind. I have always said that if I return to Mexican soccer, it would be to América, I don’t see myself returning to any other team. It’s not to close the doors on other places, but I have an Americanist background and that’s where I’m from.

Right now, I see myself here in Europe for as long as possible, I have a minimum contract for another two more years here [at Fulham]. I want to fulfil them and then see. If I were to retire here in Europe it would also be something very cool, to finish a career and do it in the best way, but I am not closing the doors of returning to Mexico.”

Jimenez scored seven goals in 31 games during an injury-hit first season at Fulham – finishing the season with a brace in a 4-2 win at relegated Luton Town.
