Club career

Montpellier

Mounié is a Montpellier HSC youth academy graduate. He made his first team debut on 28 October 2014 in a 2014–15 Coupe de la Ligue round of 32 home match against AC Ajaccio, replacing Jean Deza after 86 minutes; Montpellier lost the match 1–0.[3]

On 29 June 2016, Mounié extended his contract with Montpellier HSC by two years to 30 June 2019.[4]

On 11 March 2017, Mounié scored for the fifth consecutive Ligue 1 match by opening the scoring in the 12th minute in the 3-2 home Ligue 1 loss to Nantes; it was his 13th Ligue 1 goal of the season.[5]

Loan to Nîmes

On 31 August 2015, Mounié was loaned to Nîmes Olympique for the rest of the 2015–16 season.[6] He was the club's top scorer for the 2015–16 season, with 11 goals in 33 competitive matches, all of them scored during the 2015–16 Ligue 2 campaign.

Huddersfield Town

On 5 July 2017, Mounié joined newly-promoted Premier League club Huddersfield Town on a four-year deal for a club record fee of €13 million (£11.5 million) plus add-ons. The £11.5 million transfer fee surpassed the previous record £8 million (initial fee) that Huddersfield Town spent in buying Aaron Mooy from Manchester City on 30 June 2017.[7]

Mounié made his competitive debut on 12 August 2017, scoring twice in Huddersfield's Matchday 1 3–0 Premier League win at Crystal Palace.[8]
