The former Torquay United centre back was watched by Turner during the reserve team's goalless draw with Chelsea in midweek, as the Owls chief also ran the rule over another target in the shape of Kevin Davies.
Turner wants to sign Monk on a month's loan, which would probably be acceptable to Southampton, but the player picked up a slight back injury during the second string game, which may threaten the deal.
In any case, the 23-year-old's long-term future is with The Saints, after agreeing the terms on a new contract.
Monk would have been a free agent at the end of the current season, but has now penned a deal that runs until 2004.
