The Chile forward also admitted that he sought advice from team-mate Patrick Viera before opting to move to East London.
“I’ve spoken to Patrick about the Premier League and heard how much he loves it,” Jimenez told the official site. “He told me the fans in England are great and that if I ever had the chance to come here I should take it. Now I have that chance with West Ham.”
“I can imagine with West Ham everything will work out fine. I am looking forward to the challenge.”
