Brest have been working on the possibility of signing Huddersfield Town’s Steve Mounié, according to L’Equipe.

The Ligue 1 side are at bottom of the table after suffering two defeats in their first two matches of the 2020/21 season.

It’s claimed Brest need to strengthen their offensive unit, and their sporting leaders are looking at signing players who can have an immediate impact at the club.

Adrian Grbic was initially identified as a target, but the Austrian left Clermont for FC Lorient. They have now shifted their focus to the Terriers striker.

According to the claims, the two clubs are ‘not far apart’ in their valuations. This indicates the Championship side are ready to allow the Benin international to leave the club in this window.

There’s no mention of any figures, but the report states it would be a ‘significant investment’ for Brest.

Brest need to convince the former Montpellier attacker to return to Ligue 1 as he initially didn’t have any desire of returning to France.

L’Equipe state the leaders of the Ligue 1 side have stepped up their efforts to ‘attract’ Mounié to Brest this summer.
