Mousset, 24, started for the Premier League’s bottom club Sheffield United in their defeat against Crystal Palace on Saturday, but he has failed to score a single goal all season.
In a statement released on Monday, the club said: ‘Officials at Sheffield United are aware of images circulating on social media and are currently making internal enquiries.’
Mousset, who earns £25,000 a week, signed for Sheffield United from Bournemouth in the summer of 2019 in a deal worth £10million.
He was their top scorer last season after netting six league goals, but has failed to find the net in six league appearances this term.

In a statement, South Yorkshire Police said: ‘Police were called at around 12.10am this morning following reports of a collision on Abbeydale Road South, Sheffield.
‘It is reported that an orange Lamborghini was involved in a collision with a number of parked cars.
‘Two men in their 20s were arrested on suspicion of being over the prescribed limit. Both have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.’
The area of Sheffield is currently under Tier 3 Government restrictions, which allows residents to meet up in groups of up to six in public outdoor areas.
The crash occurred on Abbeydale Road South, which is under two miles from the club’s Bramall Lane stadium.
