Monaco are weighing up a move for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez or Southampton striker Dani Osvaldo, according to the Daily Express.
The news comes as the French club look to counterbalance the loss of Radamel Falcao, with the Colombian set for a lengthy lay-off.
Hernandez is down the pecking order at United and the striker is having to deal with the return of Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney.
A more likely target could be Saints striker Osvaldo as, after a reported training ground bust-up the striker will presumably keen to force a move away from St. Mary's.
Osvaldo, 28, is attracting the interest of other foreign clubs, Monaco will believe that his services will be more attainable and he can fill in for the injured Falcao.
Bizarrely, Monaco have recently signed a striker in Lacina Traore, however he has been shipped out on loan to Everton for the rest of the season.
Monaco boss Claudio Ranieri - who previously managed Chelsea in the Premier League prior to Jose Mourinho's first stint in West London - evidently believes that another striker is needed at the club.
