Monaco coach Ricardo has admitted an interest in signing Juventus midfielder Sergio Almiron.

The French side, who currently sit ninth in Ligue 1, are looking to bring in a defensive midfielder to bolster their ranks as they bid to climb the table in the second half of the season.

And Ricardo has identified Almiron as a possible target in the January transfer window.

The 27-year-old has failed to make an impact at Juventus after agreeing a five-year contract last summer and has made only three appearances.

Opportunity

However, Monaco already have the allotted four non-European Union players on their books

Ricardo would therefore be forced to sell one of the four non-EU players - Lucas Bernardi, Diego Perez, Souleymane Camara and Mohammed Kallon - already at the Stade Louis II if he was to make a move for Almiron.

"He (Almiron) is a good player, a good opportunity," Ricardo told the French media. "But we already have four non-European players under contract."

Monaco are also thought to be interested in signing Liverpool's unsettled midfielder Mohamed Sissoko or Middlesbrough's Fabio Rochemback.
