Newcastle and Crystal Palace register interest in signing 2-goal striker ahead of new season



Newcastle, Watford, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace have all made enquiries to sign Huddersfield forward, Steve Mounie according to TEAMtalk. 

The 24-year-old made 31 league appearances for the Terriers last season, but was unable to stop them from being relegated back into the Championship after a brief spell in the Premier League.

He only scored twice in the top-flight, which will raise questions as to whether he is good enough to play in the Premier League next season.

The report also revealed that Huddersfield have received interest from clubs in France and Germany, but it remains to be seen as to whether the Terriers are ready to listen to offers for the Benin international.

It’s highly unlikely that a decision will be made on Mounie’s future at Huddersfield though, with the striker currently playing in the African Cup of Nations.

They’ll be looking to get as much as they can for the striker if they are willing to sell him though, as he arrived for a fee in the region of £12m from Montpellier back in 2017 which was a club-record fee at the time.

But given that Huddersfield are now back in the Championship, they could be tempted to cash in on some of their players as they look to rebuild ahead of the new season which gets underway in August.

The Verdict: 

He’s got a point to prove in the Premier League in my opinion.

Mounie only scored twice in the top-flight which will be a concern for potential suitors, but you have to bare in mind that it was with a Huddersfield side that struggled for the majority of last year’s campaign as they were relegated from the top-flight.

It’ll be interesting to see if their interest in signing him results in a formal bid, as Huddersfield could be tempted to cash in on him to strengthen other areas of their squad.
