The 22 year-old joins for a club record fee from French side Montpellier, having scored 14 goals in 32 starts last season in what was his first full season in the French top division.
Mounié is a current Benin international but doesn’t require a work permit due to his dual French nationality.
David Wagner spoke to the clubs Official Site
“I`m delighted that we could sign Steve ahead of the start of pre-season training.
“He has a very exciting combination of attributes that makes his a very attractive proposition as a young striker.
“He has real physical attributes that should be perfect for the Premier League, plus we have already seen his talents as a football in his remarkable season in France.
“We have met and I know he is a great character. For a man of his young age, he already has great experience both in life and as a footballer from his time in France, playing in a high-quality Ligue 1.
“At just 22 years old, he is only going to improve too. Given what he is already capable of, that is very exciting.”
So welcome aboard to Steve Mounié who joins yesterdays recruits, Tom Ince, Kasey Palmer and Danny Williams at todays first day back to Canalside training!
