Manchester United and Liverpool are reportedly scouting Monaco star Jeremy Menez.

The 20-year-old signed for Monaco from Sochaux in June 2006 and is rated as one of France's most gifted young talents.

Menez, who has been likened to France legend Zinedine Zidane, has scored three goals in nine appearances so far this season.

The starlet made a real name for himself when he became the youngest player to score a hat-trick in Ligue 1 at the age of 17.

Emergency

Meanwhile, coach Ricardo Gomes has admitted that the onus is on him to turn things around and choose the correct combination of players.

Gomes' men succumbed to their fourth straight loss on Friday with a 3-1 home defeat against Nancy, and the Brazilian is focused on resolving their form.

"I hope soon that I will be able to play my very best team, because now we are in an emergency situation," he said.

"What happens now is incumbent on me. It is up to me to find the correct formula and above all the balance in the team."
