According to the football transfer rumours in French Media (Besoccer), Watford are targeting Montpellier striker Steve Mounie.
The Benin international has joined Montpellier in 2009. The 22-year-old has a valid contract with Montpellier until June 2019.
Steve Mounie has played 41 times for Montpellier, scoring 15 goals and creating three assists in that time.
The Benin international has been in impressive form for the French side this season.
As a member of Benin national football team, Steve Mounie has won two caps and has scored one goal.
Marco Silva has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.
The Benin international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of attacking player Marco Silva wants to target in the summer transfer window.
Marco Silva will reportedly be handed a huge transfer kitty this summer and the Montpellier striker is thought to be among the manager’s priorities.
Euro Football Rumours understood that Premier League club West Bromwich Albion are apparently trailing Watford in the pursuit of Steve Mounie. According to the rumours in French Media, Montpellier valuate their striker in the region of 15 million euros.
How strong that interest is and whether Watford will make a summer move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
