Despite having a poor first half of the season at Huddersfield Town, Steve Mounié has risen from the ashes these past few weeks under Danny Cowley, scoring three goals in his last five league games.
He scored the winners in the matches against Blackburn Rovers and Nottingham Forest, helping the Terriers earn very valuable points, and this return to form hasn’t gone unnoticed.
According to Foot Mercato, a number of Ligue 1 sides have taken an interest in bringing the Benin international back to France, with both Nîmes and Stade de Reims mentioned by the website.
The former of the two were the first to make a move, but it’s said they were put off by Huddersfield’s demands.
As for Reims, they are the latest to take a look at the situation and have ‘tested the waters’ with player to see if he would be interested.
So far, no official move has been made, so we’ll have to wait and see for that, but if the Ligue 1 side aren’t scared by what Huddersfield might want for their striker, then it could be an opportunity for Mounié to return to a league he knows well, having scored 14 goals in 35 league games for Montpellier before his £12m move to England.
