Monaco are thought to be interested in signing Liverpool defender Djimi Traore.
Monaco are thought to be interested in bringing Liverpool defender Djimi Traore to Stade Louis II.
Traore is keen to quit Anfield, with The Reds unlikely to stand in the player's way, and is rumoured to be a target for the Principality club.
Monaco have already met the 26-year-old and talks between the two clubs are due to open in the coming days to discuss the possibility of either a loan move or permanent transfer.
Meanwhile, Monaco defender Francois Modesto has agreed a contract extension at the club.
The 27-year-old was a regular in their starting line-up last term and club officials have been satisfied by his performances.
Despite serious interest from Rangers, Marseille and Galatasaray, the French stopper has accepted a contract offer to stay at Monaco until 2010.
