Bought from Montpellier in 2017 for a fee of just under £12m, Steve Mounié’s time at Huddersfield Town hasn’t quite gone to plan.
He’s played, totalling 95 appearances for the Terriers since joining, both in the Premier League and the Championship, but his output of just 19 goals and seven assists never lived up to his transfer fee.
Playing in 30 league games in the Championship, the Benin international showed he still had something to his game, which has caught the eye of Brest in Ligue 1, who appear to be on the verge of buying him.
That’s what L’Equipe are reporting on Monday, claiming the striker will be in France on Tuesday to complete a move to the Ligue 1 side for a fee of around €5m.
The 25-year-old is expected to sign a four-year deal for the French club, returning to a league where he first made a name for himself at both Nîmes Olympique and then Montpellier.
