Gallardo has had a poor relationship with the club's officials and coach Didier Deschamps in particular, and is likely to be leaving Stade Louis II in the summer.
Monaco chairman Jean-Louis Campora has already offered the Argentinian international to Lyon, as part of a swap deal including Vikash Dhorasoo and Tony Vairelles.
Dhorasoo is on loan at Bordeaux, while Vairelles is at Corsican side Bastia but both would like to leave Lyon and could be tempted by a move to The Principality.
Monaco, meanwhile, have reportedly made a bid of around é¼7.5 million for Sochaux midfielder Benoit Pedretti.
The 21-year-old has impressed for the promoted side who have held their own in Le Championnat this season, and a swap deal involving Monaco players could be another option of payment for his services.
