Khaled Lemmouchia born  in Givors, France , is an Algerian football player who is currently playing as a defensive midfielder for ES Setif in the Algerian league.

Lemmouchia started his career at the age of 16 when he joined the Olympique Lyonnais academy, despite receiving interest from almost every club in France. He worked his way into the reserve squad. However, when his amateur contract expired he was not offered a professional deal and signed with amateur-club AS Moulins. A year later, he would join another amateur side, this time AS Lyon Duchère where he would spend the next 4 seasons.[1] In the summer of 2006, he quit AS Lyon Duchère and signed his first professional contract with Algerian side ES Setif.

After joining ES Setif, he quickly became an important team member and in his first season, he led the team to the league title as well as the Arab Champions League title.

His performances for the Lyon junior squads earned him a call-up to the French Under-17 team but decided to represent his native Algeria instead. He would make his debut for the Algerian Under-20 team in 2001 in the qualifiers for the African Youth Championship.

He received his first call-up to the Algerian national team in January 2008 for a training camp in France.
