The 22-year-old striker is expected to complete his é¼1.5million (£1m) switch to Les Verts on Wednesday and will sign a three-year deal.
Gigliotti, who was loaned to Troyes last term and scored nine goals while with ESTAC, was recently told he had no future at Monaco.
Nantes full-back Franck Signorino could join Gigliotti at St Etienne next season as coach Laurent Roussey is an admirer.
However, Bafetimbi Gomis' future at the Stade Geoffrey-Guichard remains uncertain, with the striker refusing to train with St Etienne.
Lens sports director Francis Collado has now revealed that Sang et Or want to sign the promising front man.
"Lens are interested in Bafe Gomis, and have told this to St Etienne, who don't want to let him go," Collado told French press.
"We are waiting for a window to open up, eventually."
Meanwhile, St Etienne goalkeeper Jeremie Janot has signed a contract extension which will keep him at the club until 2010.
