Crystal Palace: Club make Steve Mounie enquiry

Crystal Palace: Club make Steve Mounie enquiry

Huddersfield Town are reportedly set to sell striker Steve Mounie this summer, with Crystal Palace just one Premier League outfit said to be interested in the 24-year-old’s services.

According to TEAMtalk, the south London club have made an enquiry about Mounie, but could face competition for his signature, with Newcastle United, Bournemouth and Watford also said to have done the same.

The same outlet reports that the Benin international has also attracted interest from a number of clubs in France and Germany, though they are currently being put off by the potential size of the deal.

Scoring seven league goals back in the 2017/18 season, Mounie certainly showed some quality and played his part in Huddersfield staying in the Premier League.

That being said, his form the following term dipped and is a cause for concern for Crystal Palace or any other team looking to sign him this summer.

He scored just two goals in 31 Premier League appearances despite averaging slightly more shots per game compared to the season before (2 to 1.8) as the Terriers went on to see relegation (as per WhoScored).

With Huddersfield making just 7.4 key passes per game — only Burnley made less (6.7) — perhaps Mounie was not always afforded a lot of quality chances.

Still, to muster up just two goals throughout an entire league campaign is disappointing and something Crystal Palace surely need to take into account before potentially making a bid for the centre-forward.
