West Bromwich Albion are one of three Premier Clubs interested in Montpellier striker Steve Mounie, according to Foot 365.

The 22-year-old has spent the whole of his career in France, including a loan move away to Nimes in the second tier of French football last season.

The Benin striker joined Montpellier’s youth academy in 2009 and graduated into their senior team in 2014.

The forward has been a standout performer at the Stade de la Mosson this campaign, scoring 14 goals in 29 appearances across all competitions.

West Brom are reportedly set to battle fellow Premier League teams Leicester City and Middlesbrough and Ligue 1 side Nice for the signature of Mounie.

In June 2016 the centre-forward signed a two-year contract extension with the French side that keeps him with them until 2019, which could increase the asking price.

The striker would be a welcome addition to Tony Pulis’ side, with the departure of Saido Berahino in January leaving the Baggies manager with only Salomon Rondon and Hal Robson-Kanu as his options up top.
