It is hoped star man Jimenez, having fractured his skull last November, will return at the start of 2021/22.
And with Bruno Lage – who played a 4-4-2 formation at previous club Benfica – set to be confirmed as Wolves’ new boss later this week, record signing Silva could soon be playing up front with the Mexican ‘legend’.
On Jimenez, 18-year-old Silva said: “I have a good relationship with Raul, he helped me a lot. A lot.
“In training when I do something he will come and say I’ve done it right, and if he thinks I haven’t done it right he will tell me.
“I listen because Raul is a legend at past clubs, he scored a lot of goals. He has experienced a lot of games. My job is to listen.
“We have a good relationship at this club. It doesn’t feel like a battle. They will help me to be better. I will help them to be better. It’s a healthy competition.
“I love to see Raul play and not just me, but the fans too. We have missed seeing Raul play.”
Silva, who cost £35million, ended last season with a respectable four Premier League goals to his name.
He has thanked the now-departed Nuno Espirito Santo for showing lots of faith in him, too.
“The most important thing was at the start and middle of the season. When people talk a lot about me, my transfer and why I don’t play or score goals,” added Silva.
“Nuno helped me a lot in this time because he came to me and said ‘you have to work and listen to what I say to improve’.
“I have to say thank you for what he’s done for me and the opportunities. I feel proud because it’s different to play in the Premier League at 18-years-old and to have 30 games.
"I have to say thank you to the coach and my team-mates for helping me. It’s amazing for me.”
